THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Jan 10: There are two problems that an auto rickshaw passenger usually faces-additional charge and wrong routes.
Now Motor Vehicle Department have found a solution for both- Google Maps will now show the charge and the way.
This is a brand new feature in the Google Maps. The passenger has to mark the destination on MVD’s app from Google Maps. After this, the passenger can see the ideal route to destination.
Auto rickshaw driver will also make use of this. On reaching the destination, the app will also show the payable charge.
One can also access the rates and routes through the Public Transport Mode. They can also compare the rates between other private apps like Ola and Uber.
New Delhi traffic police have made this a success. This will be first implemented in main cities like Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi and Kozhikkode.
Complaints have popped regarding rates charges by auto rickshaws after charges were hiked recently.
