Default AyAuto - Dial-an-auto service starts in Pune!

The members on their FB page are lauding their service. You can just dial the number mentioned on their website and well, it works like just how your dial-a-cab thingy works. Great initiative in the party city of Pune. Keep partying, but don’t drive. Just holler ‘AyAuto!’



AyAuto - Radio Rickshaw Service

P.S: Mods. If this needs to be shifted to "Shifting Gears" than kindly do the honours. I just felt it sits here nicely along with 'Street Experiences'.

Thats a good initiative started there. Wonder the way it would work though. Given the mentality of these auto guys - "Sir woh area mein nahi jaa sakte" or "Half return dena padega" and all that rubbish they can come up with. If that can be taken care of, pretty novel idea for sure.

Hence they charge 10 bucks more. Which I think is justified given that the auto will come to pick you up wherever you are. Few of my friends have used this service and they only have good things to say about it. I just hope they start the same thing in Bangalore too.

Fantastic initiative, All the best to the initiators. I hope its successful. Atleast the customers will not be pestered with the late night charges, straight forward routes (no taking for a ride literally!!). How will the customer recognize the autos, would they be sporting a different colour?

Next you can expect some snacks/cold drinks to be ordered too along with the Aotu bookings.

Thinking at the dubious/famous ghoda meters in Mumbai, we need this service fast in Mumbai/Thane too.

Thats a really nice initiative. Very help full for elder people and may be soon to ladies too.
Waiting to try once, before suggesting it to others.
Hope this will check the other errand drivers who try to loot the needy.

Was wondering if some one will start a "Teach an Auto Road Manners" initiative. Because, come to think of it, we can deal with not being able to dial an Auto, but with their road sense(atleast in Blore), am sure some one is gonna snap and make it even with them.

But then Good initiative, case of something against nothing.
