Mumbai Autorickshaw, A Daily Necessity To Travel

A snapped view from a Auto Rickshaw ride. They are the only challengers to the lawless drivers that the bikers are, in the city. The one thing they ensure is point to point drop service. No other public mode of transportation is so convenient. They can take you through crowded streets, lanes, highways without any hesitation and in the shortest time possible. Driven mainly by migrants to the city, these essential mode of transportation will be your first choice in suburbs (since they are not allowed to ply in the city).

Unlike other cities in India, the public transportation in Mumbai runs on the fare meter system that works. No need to ask for a rate card since the new electronic meters display the fare upfront for the passenger.
