Don’t Get Ripped Off: Google Maps Now Shows Estimated Fare For Autos

Anmol posted on 20 December

Commuters, take a moment of silence for all those times an auto-wallah has overcharged you, or taken you on an alternate (read longer) route to empty your wallets, coz that ain’t happening no more.  

Google has introduced a brand new feature, where you can check the suggested route as well as the estimated fare (well, a price range to be more precise) to your destination. The folks from Google have said that “the new feature will reflect fares based on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police”. So, you’ll be pretty sorted. 

P.S. It’s only available on Android devices. You’ll have to update the app to get this feature. 

We first read about this here.
