Uber taxi hits ground running in Kochi

Kochi: Uber taxis are getting a mixed reception in the state. While most of the people give it a warm welcome, a few others oppose it tooth and nail as they fear the multi national would steal their jobs. The minimum fair is Rs 50; each of the first 15 kilo meters is charged Rs 7 each and from then on, Rs 15 each. For Uber, long distance travel is a strict no no. Everything from booking onwards is controlled by a smart phone. When one books a journey, a vehicle from the nearest point arrives to pick the passenger. In Kochi, more than 600 taxis, including those of taxi drivers, are working under Uber.
