Google Maps to show auto-rickshaw routes, estimated fares

Google Maps has added auto rickshaws as the new section under its public transport mode. As the name implies, commuters will be able to view suggested routes for the ride as well as the estimated auto-rickshaw fares, making it easier for them to plan their trips.
