‘Chandigarh Ecocabs’ ‘ dial-a-rickshaw facility ‘ was launched by the Adviser to the Administrator, U.T. Chandigarh to facilitate easy access to the green mode of transport. The concept of dial-a-rickshaw service is based on a similar model that is running successfully in Fazilka town of Punjab since five years. Fazilka has nine call centres, which are actually tea shops that run near rickshaw stands. Whenever a resident calls for a rickshaw there, the tea vendor informs the service provider standing first in queue. This not only helps increase the income of rickshaw pullers, but also saves fuel and the environment.
