15,000 radio cabs for Delhi

It will be a smooth ride for tourists and citizens during the Commonwealth Games in Delhi as the government has estimated that around 15,000 radio taxis will be on the roads by October.

"There is no hurdle to obtain licences (to operate radio taxis). Anyone who satisfies the criteria can get it without difficulty.

We are encouraging people to travel by buses and radio cabs instead of using personal vehicles," transport minister Arvinder Singh Lovely said. The cabs will be in operation before the Games and will offer a safe mode of transport, he added.
Earlier, chief minister Sheila Dikshit flagged off a new radio taxi service 'YO Cabs'.
