The online taxi service would bring much-needed reform and convenience for the daily commuters. The public has often had to bear with the inflated cost of taxi fare and the syndicate has made it an unpopular option for daily transport. However, an affordable online solution would bring long-awaited relief to the people who need a ride to their destinations on time. The minimum Rs.99 fare is respectable compared to the current practice of indiscriminate flat rates.

Administrative Chief Rabindra Bhupal Pradhan said that Metro Online Taxi will offer rides for starting cost of Rs.99. He further added that the company is planning on expanding the service to more areas with more taxis in a near future.

The digitalization of transport is a key element of the public ride and it will provide a much safer and convenient public transport service and the digital embrace has been the key.
