On several occasions to catch early morning flights I have had to use cabs to get to the airport, in the middle of the night, alone. So, based on experience Meru is my preferred
. I never once faced any issues using them at night. However, that doesn't mean I wasn't alert throughout.
There are a lot of options available when it comes to 24 hour cab service in Bangalore
. It is usually good to go with the well-known ones even though slightly expensive. If you are working late then make sure you use your company cab service. However, there are no guarantees but then safety doesn't come easy, especially in our country, more so if you are a woman traveling alone.
I remember a friend of mine telling me about a conversation she had with a cab driver here in Bangalore, and very recently too. He said that people look at all of them skeptically for the crimes of a few. This is actually true for even I’m guilty of doing so. But can’t help it, can we? He said that cabs are now fitted with panic buttons. In fact, sometimes when children in the cab mistakenly press it, he has to answer the call center operator immediately to prevent a police complaint from being registered against him. Well, I think that’s a step in the right direction. How much of a deterrent that is, well, I don’t know.
Finding a quick taxi service in Bangalore
is as easy as finding home delivery options. However, I insist that you be vigilant whenever using one at night. And always, always be alert!
