DescriptionAuto Taxi Meter and Card with updated April 20, 2012 fares.
Fed up of tampered auto meters and arguments with your auto or taxi driver?
Counter this menace with Mumbai Auto Tax Meter & Card app.
You start your gps, jump into an auto and hit the Start Trip button. Now watch the auto meter and the meter on your phone, start ticking. (Please allow for waiting time and GPS problems with certain phone models)
The app measures the exact distance of travel based on GPS and shows you what the meter should show and the corresponding fare. This is your foil against tampered meters. In fact we have some users who have refused to pay the auto meter fare and paid fare based on this app and the auto guys have meekly accepted it after being show the app meter.
It also provides you with a simple table to convert the meter to the fare.
These kind of tools increase the transparency of public services.
Apart from this, we would use the funds to increase the kinds of smart phones supported by the app.
We would also create a public awareness campaign and provide free training sessions for users to move them to smart phones.
