Oye Taxi

Mumbai has many modes of public transport. The taxis are one of them. These were also there during the British times.

These taxis are of the Fiat company. They accommodate four or less than four people. Unlike the BEST buses taxi drivers are better in driving. Some of them are equaly bad. Some taxi drivers are so careful that they drive terribly slow the passengers have to say " Bhaiya jaldi chalo humko late hota hai." Or the over enthu drivers go so fast that one has to remind the driver that he/she doesnt want to die so soon.

The way one pays is by a taxi meter card the meter reading starts at Rs. 1:00 . Dont get excited it doesnt cost one rupee, the minimum one pays for a taxi drive is Rs. 13. There is another rate when you travel after 12 in the night which is Rs. 15. minimum.

Taxis are good way of traveling I really will approve of it.
