The Trans-Harbour line is the link Harbour line of the Mumbai Suburban Railway connects between Navi Mumbai and Thane Operates by Central Railway. Its Termini are Thane, Vashi, Nerul and Panvel on the Thane–Vashi and Thane–Panvel Routes.

The City and Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra (CIDCO) was appointed as a New Town Development Authority in 1970. The government acquired land from 95 villages and handed over to CIDCO for the development of towns. To decongest the mother city, Mumbai, CIDCO developed 14 nodes in Navi Mumbai. The development of Navi Mumbai International Airport and 6 railway corridors in Navi Mumbai were meant for increasing connectivity between the towns, nodes and mega establishments. The major features of the rail corridor are direct access from residential to railway station by foot, convenient interchange facility from one corridor to another, double discharge platforms at every station, easy to follow routes and comfortable and pleasant journeys form the key features of the commuter railway system in Navi Mumbai.
The line was freight-only from 1993 until 2004, when passenger service began. It was formally inaugurated on 9 November 2004 by Railway Minister Laloo Prasad Yadav.
On 19 January 2013, the conversion was completed of all ten rakes on the Trans-Harbour line into 12-car trains.
