PUBLIC AUTO FARE OPTIMIZATION THROUGH TRANSPORTATION THEORY: THE INFLUENCING FACTORS
Main Article Content
Sharingan auto-rickshaws is a green and economical way to get around urban areas, and it can help alleviate traffic jams. Due to the growth of India's most populous cities at an astronomical rate in a context where low incomes and outdated transportation infrastructure are aggravated by the rapid expansion of the suburbs and the rapid rise in the use of personal vehicles, the country's transport crisis has been magnified.Integration and policy efforts toward commuters' adoption are hindered by the informal structure and lack of studies. Therefore, this study is one of the first to examine the perceptions of commuters, drivers, and the district administration of Ranchi city regarding the use of shared auto-rickshaws. Understanding and improving commuters' satisfaction levels, raising awareness about sharing auto-rickshaws, and supporting the promotion of the shared mode are the goals of this research.
