Comparing rickshaw fares in Goa, Mumbai

Published by:

Though the rickshaws in Mumbai and Goa are similar in design, and features, there is a major difference in the rickshaw fares.
In Mumbai, the minimum fare in january 2018 was rs 18 , while in goa the minimum is Rs 40 ( usually Rs 50)
For even a small distance of a 1.5 km, they will charge Rs 50, sometimes asking for Rs 60
As a result, many people prefer to use their own vehicle, use a bus or walk the distance, especially for shorter distances, resulting in lower volumes for the rickshaw drivers
If the fares were more reasonable, more people would be taking a rickshaw in goa.
The fuel efficiency of the rickshaws in most cities is likely to be similar, so why is there so much difference in rates.
