Off late I’ve been moving around a lot in the city, mostly for work and I’ve started to prefer taking taxi’s to me driving around. They help me avoid the tense moments in traffic and catch up on social media/ calls while on the way! Occasionally I’ve also taken local taxis for short trips to destinations like Ooty, Coorg and Chennai through some local cab services. Taxi services in Bangalore like I believe in most medium to big cities have changed in the lest year or so.
For the local drives, specially to the airport, there are services like Meru cabs (can be reached on 44224422), Mega cabs (can be reached on 47474747) while both of these also provide online and app bookings as well. For inter-city drives there is taxi aggregators like OLA and “taxi for sure” and Uber. There is also a wide number of cheap Bangalore cab services provided by local companies who can help with day long travels and outstation travels at reasonable rates. If you are travelling with friends or extended family, you can even opt for bigger cars like Innova which not only keep you all together, but are also more comfortable for long drives.
As for me, as most of my travel is point to point within the city, I’ve enjoyed using the apps, which can pin point your location through the phone and send you the taxi right where you want in a matter of minutes. These affordable cab services in Bangalore can help you get to your meetings without bothering for parking’s, which is a major pain point in the city. If I’m travelling from home, specially outstation travels, I generally prefer local taxis around as the drivers are mostly known and repeated and it gives local guys a boost in their business. It is easy to find these local taxi services through search and word of mouth. I tend to store some local numbers with me to use quickly.
I can definitely recommend you trying to use these affordable cab services in Bangalore if you are visiting the city or just going around for work or leisure and specially if you intend to party late into the night! Without spending a lot of money you can be best assured that you can reach your destination safely. Enjoy your trips in Bangalore and tons of tourist places around the city with these growing cab services. Welcome to Bangalore!
