The main reason for this feature is to incorporate this most commonly used mode of public transport in Google Maps and also share transparent information regarding the price of the journey. With this feature, users can plan their journey better since this also gives an estimate regarding the price of the auto-rickshaw ride.
People usually use auto-rickshaws for their daily commute and face problems like fare negotiation. This feature will enable them with suggested routes as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares. This feature can be found within the 'public transport' and 'cab' modes in the app and will be based on the trip route and also on the official fare model shared by the Delhi Traffic Police.
