We will introduce the cabs in a phased manner
What prompted the government to introduce small cabs in the city?
We decided to phase out bluelines, introduce low-floor buses and to bring in radio taxis to make commuting a smooth affair. After that, we introduced economy cabs to benefit a larger chunk of population. Similarly, we are open to the idea of introducing small cars that complement autorickshaws.
How will the new cabs function and what would be the fare structure?
I have asked the transport department to submit a detailed note on the issue and a final decision will be taken by the cabinet. The fare will have to be similar to autorickshaws.
There has been a rise in the number of complaints regarding autorickshaws.
It is unfortunate that the number of complaints has risen. We will soon install global positioning (GPS) system in all autos so that they can be monitored better. Also, any new commercial vehicle in the city will be GPS equipped.
With restricted space on city roads, would parking these cabs and creating cab stands would be a problem?
We will do this in a phased manner, not at one go. That is a big reason why we have not finalised the policy yet. We are working on all these details.
