It was only last month tha OLA added Tata Nano in its fleet of cabs, and now TaxiForSure - a Bangalore based cab service provider - has launched its NanoCab fleet. Though TaxiForSure is currently present in 26 cities across India, NanoCabs will first be made available only in Bangalore from the first week of December. Folks in Bangalore can book a NanoCab via the TaxiForSure mobile app.
Interestingly, the company claims the NanoCabs will be cheaper than hiring an auto-rickshaw. Here's how: the NanoCab costs only Rs. 25 for the first 2Kms and Rs. 10 for every Km traversed after that. Whereas in the case of an auto rickshaw, the average fare includes Rs. 25 for the first 1.9Kms and Rs. 13/Km after that.
At first, only 100 Tata Nanos will be made available, which the company has taken on lease. The company will increase the fleet's size once the demand goes up, and will introduce the same service in other metro cities too. The NanoCab will be available 24 hours a day, and the tariff will remain the same even during the night.
