BENGALURU: Although the Karnataka government has asked them to stop their services, the aggregator autorickshaws continue their services with reduced prices from the usual Rs 100 to Rs 70-Rs 80 Vaibhav Sadhamta, a city professional, said complained that autorickshaws accept reservations but fail to reach the pick-up location and cancel the reservation, causing passengers to wait.

For a 1.5 km trip, Ola charged Rs 83, Uber Rs 74 and Rapido Rs 76. Ola and Rapido reduced prices. The break shows Rs 30 for the base fare and Rs 15 for subsequent kilometers similar to what the government has ordered.

The Department for Transport said it received no response from the rickshaw aggregator services and plans to take action against them on Monday. Hemantha Kumar, Commissioner for Transport, said they were unaware of the price reduction until the morning but it will still remain illegal. “Local autorickshws are uncooperative and often charge more than their aggregator counterparts, which is more convenient to get, especially at night,” said Sriparna Roy, a professional.
