Traffic in Arangaon village

Ahmednagar - Local Transportation


Unlike Pune, Ahmednagar rickshaw drivers do not charge based upon the meter reading. In an effort to curb exorbitant rates, fixed prices have been negotiated with a group of rickshaw drivers. The prices cover travel between places such as Meherabad, Meherazad, Meher Nazar compound, the bazaar, the bus station, and so forth. The prices are posted in most Baba places. Before riding in a rickshaw, be sure to confirm the posted price with the driver.

Pay the driver the entire amount at the end of your trip, even for a round-trip ride. Rates are double between midnight and 6:00 am. An extra charge is also made if you ask the rickshaw driver to wait more than thirty minutes. You can avoid this charge if you ask the driver to return at a specific time. Fifty percent extra is charged for a third passenger in the rickshaw.


Bicycles can be rented at budget rates by the day, week, or month. Inquire at the Pilgirm Registration Office for details.
