Autos in Gurugram

Gurugram is located in the National Capital region near New Delhi in Haryana state. It is located about 32 km to the south-west of New Delhi. Due to its rapid urbanization and industrialization, there has been a spurt in job opportunities and high lifestyle which has led to a massive migration into this “Millennium city”. Due to high number of companies here, commutation has always been a prime concern for this city.

Gurugram is connected to Delhi by National Highway 8 which is the major highway in Gurugram running from Delhi to Mumbai. While the 27.7 km Delhi-Gurugram border-Kherki Dhaula stretch has been developed as an expressway, the rest is expanded to six lanes. Means of commutation include government and private buses, metro and shared auto rickshaws.

There are almost 18,000 auto rickshaws plying in Gurugram city. Auto rickshaws form a major chunk of commutation in Gurugram. It is the second popular choice only after Metro in Gurugram. But due to bad conditions of roads and lack of proper monitoring, hiring an auto is a costly affair in Gurugram. Unlike their counterpart in most of the places in Delhi where running on meter is mandatory, Gurugram auto rickshaws don’t have the mandate to do so. Autos in Gurugram charge exorbitant prices at their will.
