Call Auto in Chennai – No more haggling

Chennai call autoGates India has started call auto services in Chennai. You can dial 4344 4344 and book your trip in advance. No more haggling for fares. It is fixed at Rs 6/- per Km. Wait; it’s not all that sweet. There is an additional service charge of Rs 40 per trip.

I talked to their call center executive today. He told me that they had serviced about 3000 trips already. Have you ever used  the call auto service? Are they reliable? Share your experiences.

I wish more operators start this call auto business and free Chennaites from haggling with auto drivers.

    Service charges is high. this may be reduce

  6. Yes this is what we Chennaites were longing for ! Thanks whoever introduced this much awaited “call auto service” I read in a tamil daily that initially 500 autos are pressed into service. Not sufficient. I am sure both the service providers as well as we the customers will be benefited. My hearty congratulations to Mr.Navaneetham, Director, Call Auto Pvt.Ltd operating 500 autos in city. Wish you success in this venture!

  7. Nothing so great.. Rs 40 flat per trip too high..

  8. N.Chandrasekaran says:

    Service charge of Rs 40 is very high. Does not appear reasonable. May consider reducing to Rs 20

  9. there is lot of hidden rules are running behind this.
    up to 10 km the charge is 6/km. After 10 km its 10/km.
    when compare the price there is no difference and for long journey its throat cutting.
    so there is no benifit for the people..

    An experienced Person.
