    Good News: Prepaid Taxi Service Now Available From Guwahati Airport

    The fares of this new prepaid taxi service will start from Rs 200 and will be available in 60 districts across the Northeast

    A much needed Prepaid Taxi Service was launched at the Lokapriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport on October 3rd, 2019 by Regional Executive Director of Airport Authority of India (AAI), Sanjeev Jindal.

    This initiative is a collaborative effort by Assam police and AAI and accordingly two office spaces were inaugurated at the LGBI airport today.

    Launching this service, Jindal said, “This new taxi service will be a boon to passengers travelling frequently and as the Guwahati airport is the gateway to the Northeast, this new initiative will improve the status of the airport. This step will benefit passengers as well as drivers because there is no fixed system of a taxi service,”.

    “I have spoken with some of the drivers today and they are happy with the step. I believe that people will have better benefits with this service,” added Jindal.

    The fares of the taxi service will start from Rs 200 onwards and will be available in 60 districts across the Northeast and the fares would range according to the dropping distance.

    Also, the fare prices have been broken down according to category wise which includes: If a person wants to travel from the LGBI airport to Bhutan then he/she has to pay an amount of Rs 4,500, Cherrapunjee Rs 3000, Dawki Rs 5000, Shillong Rs 2000, Itanagar Rs 7000, Tura Rs 3,500, Barpeta Rs 2,600, Biswanath Chariali Rs 4000, Bongaigaon Rs 3000, Dhubri Rs 4,500, Golaghat Rs 5000, Jorhat Rs 5000, Kaziranga Rs 3,500 and so on.

    The initiative which has been taken up jointly by the Assam Police and AAI is for the first time going to have fixed price range of taxi fares which was not available earlier which had led to exorbitant taxi fares for people arriving at the airport.

    Lauding the new step, West Guwahati MLA Ramendra Narayan Kalita who was present at the launch said, “This service will benefit all the passengers who come from abroad and other states of the country and is going to ensure their safety,” Kalita said.
