    Rickshaw is most popular mean of Transport in absence of reliable and quality Public Transportation System in the city. These 3 wheeler VESPA of Italy and assembeled in Pakistan can carry max 3 Passangers and videly used by peoples specially females traveling alone prefer Rickshaw over Taxi's because the Drivers LALA (means the Brother) are Reliable.

    Cost, well there used to be Meter but no more, its need to be set and bargain before get in, for short ride like 2 or 3 km its Rs. 30 (US$0.50) and for a distence like 10 km Aprx Rs.70 to 80 (Littel over a Dollar)
