Rickshaw Fare Calculator


RouteGuru is a driving directions Google Map for the NCR/Delhi region in India.

RouteGuru uses what it calls 'landmark based' directions. Many streets in India don't have names so RouteGuru uses the 'Indian way' of locating an address, using prominent landmarks. So a typical route in RouteGuru will say "take the left after restaurant X, pass by theatre Y on the right..etc."

Another really cool feature of RouteGuru is that it will also tell you the approximate motorised rickshaw fare for the journey. RouteGuru is available by mobile phone at On-the-Go (SMS). So the next time you are in Delhi you will be able to tell your rickshaw driver where to go and how much you should be paying.
