- Does not take traffic and toll fares into consideration (charges at slow speeds are provided in the Other Info section though)
- Please note that this app calculates fares from the latest tariff for your city. In many tests, it is accurate to a 10% most of the time. But, depending on traffic, toll and other factors sometimes the fare might be off by more that. Treat this as a guideline only.
- Break up of the rate, other info and local taxi company numbers combined are a great tool for all taxi-related information.
For best results, make sure you select Late Night in Rate section, for off peak trips.
