Taxi services in Bangalore

Bangalore, known as the Silicon Valley of India, is a sprawling city with over 35 distinct neighbourhoods and 130 different traffic signals. Whether you want to go to the city for dinner, or just want to grab some groceries without using public transport, Bangalore cabs are an easy way to get around.

There are two main types of taxi services in Bangalore – auto-rickshaws (also known as tuk-tuks) and call taxis. Auto-rickshaws are small three-wheeled vehicles that can carry up to three passengers at once and can be convenient for very short trips within the city centre. Call taxis are regular four-wheeled cars that can usually seat up to four passengers. They are a good option for longer journeys, or if you want a little more comfort than a tuk-tuk can offer. You can hail a Bangalore cab from the street, or book one online or by phone app.

Both auto-rickshaws and call taxis use meters to calculate fares. Cabs in Bangalore are an important part of the transportation system, and they’re regulated by the government. That means there are certain rules and regulations that all Bangalore cab drivers must follow, including sticking to certain routes and having a permit that shows their licence.
