As per the board outside the 'prepaid auto booth,' the service is available 24x7. But from 6 am to 10 pm the charges are 25 rupees for the first 2 kilometeres and then Rs. 8 every kilometer after that. For late night shifts, the charges would increase by 25 percent and apart from shopping bags or handbags, luggage would cost 7.50 rupees per bag.
On asking a hospital employee about how this helps Gurgaon, she said, “I live in Delhi but come down to Gurgaon for work and this helps when it gets late and lesser autos run on the street. Atleast now, I know where to find a vehicle to take me to the nearest metro station.”
Agreeing to the same, another resident said, “Atleast now we can expect the rate of crime to go down. Even if it doesn't go down drastically, a change in the statistics would also be welcomed."
