Such services have always failed
AHMEDABAD: Prepaid auto services have found it difficult to flourish in the city, mainly because of the local auto mafia which charges high rates from commuters. A prepaid service similar to G-Auto was started at Ahmedabad railway station in February 2009 but, due to pressure from local auto unions, it closed down within three months of its launch.
Local autos would sometimes allow passengers to share a vehicle and pay lower rates to edge out G-Auto drivers. Local auto unions also went to high court to get an order against G-Auto service but the high court dismissed their plea. The local auto drivers had also compelled the Airport Authority of India (AAI) not to renew G-Auto contract and pressurized them to withdraw the booking counter.
