Competition among ’share’ auto-wallahs has led to the virtual standardization of fare per passenger based on their destination.Shared autos play an important role in transporting urban India, where state-organized public transport, while not quite crippled, is congested to a point of extreme unreliability, especially during peak hours. Or connecting the sub-urban areas where state owned transport facilities are very few and infrequent.
