I am planning on making a trip to Thane in the coming months. What mode of transport should I choose to go around the city in Thane? Also, what will the prices for auto-rickshaws be like there?
Hardik asked on 2017-06-20
The common mode of transport that most people use to get around in Thane is to use the auto-rickshaw service itself. The fares will be determined by the rickshaw meters; the government has recently made it compulsory for auto rickshaw drivers to install the meter and take trips with the meter running.
So, when you board an auto-rickshaw, be sure to ask the driver to ensure that the electronic meter that gives the fare is running. Or else he will charge more. Also, try to get a sense of what the fares will be like so that it becomes easier to haggle to bring the fares down. For example, Thane a Sion is 15-18km and the price for the ride would be between 130-140. Negotiate to bring the prices down before you board the rickshaw.
