New Auto fare in Bangalore is in effect from Aug 1, 2010. But, Autos have been given 2 month time period to change their meters.
As a result, commuters are expected to know the fare conversion from old to new. Either trust the Auto Driver or have a print of the fare conversion table published.
So I quickly wrote a mobile application to do the conversion. I wrote 2 versions, one android version and other Java ME (MIDP 2.0) application.
Here are the links to the application installables
1. Java Me (MIDP 2.0) App: http://sriki77-blog.googlegroups.com/web/AutoFareMe.jar
2. Android App: http://sriki77-blog.googlegroups.com/web/AutoFareDroid.apk
- Enter the current fare in the meter.
- Click Convert button.
- The amount you need to pay, the new fare, will be shown.
