Calculate Auto Fare with Rick Fare
If you have the internet on your mobile, you can go to Rickfare.com and enter the fare to calculate the amount to be paid. This site is often updated, so you don’t have to worry about the calculation’s correctness. Also, make sure you ask for the latest tariff card from the Auto Drivers so that you can crosscheck the rates with them
In case you find the online service not calculating the rates correctly, it is possible because since the new tariffs came into effect recently and you might like to wait for them to update the calculation.
