Taxi fare comparison in Kolkata : Uber/Ola/TFS/Yellow Taxi


Just like Samsung and Apple, Indian luxury taxi giants - Ola and Uber are in legal fight. Though Uber is present in fewer cities compared to India-grown Ola, Uber has stronger presence in certain cities. As I used Uber in Kolkata and Bangalore, it seems to be the cheapest taxi in the metro.

In Bangalore Uber is rocking with its UberPool (similar to OlaShare, but you can book more than 1 seats for pool). However in Kolkata Ola has launched its super cheap taxi - Ola Micro.


You must update your app to use Ola Micro @ Rs 6/km.

Check the comparison.
