Chennai City Transport

The ubiquitous auto rickshaw is a popular form of transport within Madras city. Your skills in haggling and bargaining can be put to the test when dealing with the auto drivers. Prepaid taxis can be hired from the railway station or airport. The newer entrants on the scene are the 'call taxis'. They are just a phone call away, and can be relied upon for prompt service, albeit at a slightly higher cost. Private cars can be hired for trips within the city and outlying places. But over the years, the growing menace of reckless driving, scant regard for road discipline and increasing accidents has made travel within the city a nightmare. Chennai has the dubious distinction of extremely high road accidents vis-à-vis other cities.
