Normal taxis are few and far between in Madras. Your best bet is the three-wheeled autorickshaw. One autorickshaw can accommodate upto three passengers. If you are staying in a hotel, you can ask the hotel to fix up an autorickshaw for you. The ride should take 20-30 minutes from most of the main hotels in town. 'Call taxis' ply on (reasonable) metered rates. You usually need to phone a call taxi company a couple of hours before the time you need the taxi to pick you up. Here are a few telephone numbers of some Call Taxi Companies that we have used.

  • Barathi Call Taxi - 2814 2233
  • Fast Track Call Taxi - 2473 2020
  • Chennai Call Taxi - 2538 4455

    Autorickshaw drivers are notorious for haggling. However, it may be easier to settle for a flat rate to avoid worrying about whether the driver is taking the optimal route!
