Namma Yatri fares will be as per government prescribed fares.
Auto Associations in Bangalore have developed their own mobile app called Namma Yatri. The new ride-hailing app is designed to take on aggregators like Ola and Uber.
According to a media report, the Autorickshaw Driver Union (ARDU) has developed the app in collaboration with the Beckn Foundation, which supports Infosys founder Nandan Nileka. The new application will be launched on November 1, 2022.
Motorists are said to be frustrated by the high commissions charged by aggregators. They also lost their customers because they lost their customers. In fact, the state government recently took note of the overcharging by Ola and Uber and ordered them to stop 3-wheeler services in the city.
According to reports, the Namma Yatri fares will be as per the government prescribed fares. A flat fare of Rs. 40 at metro stations, residences and offices within a radius of 2 km, an additional Rs. 10 as pickup fee.
Another auto association, Peace Auto, is working on a similar program called Rook.
