The Official Govt Approved Rates for Tourist Cabs as well as Black and Yellow Taxis has been attached below. Everything is given in complete detail.

If you want to calculate the fare to get to the railway station from your hotel or vice versa, calculate the total distance in KMs and multiply it with the per km fare one way given in the last column (one way journey without return).

Eg: Baga to Thivim Railway Station = 23 Kms and Per Km Fare (Swift Dzire AC) = 43 Rs / KM
Total Amount = 23 X 43 = 989 (Approx 1000 INR)
I have verified these rates as of Dec 2023 for Tourist Taxis.

nope the local taxi unions doesn't allow them to operate and govt. doesn't do anything because the taxi drivers and their families are vote banks for political parties and they don't want to lose that

As per the review of that app. it deducts 200 rs when you want to book the taxi. It goes for search after money is deducted. And most of the time you will get message that no taxis around your area. Then if you want to refund the money it goes to application wallet or paytm. So if you planning for it to be for Airport or Railway station, be careful.

Catching a bus on the flyover bridge is not safe ladies & families as you have to walk on the tracks. Back packers prefer this route.

The existing route of 17311/12 MAS VSG express via JTJ, YPR, UBL is a very lengthy and time consuming route although its provides as alternate train to VSG from YPR.

As the earlier biweekly 17309/10 YPR VSG express is converted to daily since November 2019 the 17311/12 MAS VSG express can be easily diverted via RU, GTL, BAY route to serve the destination quickly.

Moreover this train will serve as an additional train from the hinterlands of A.P., Karnataka to Goa.

Wonder why has SWR still not restored this train and it's RSA partner VSG VLKN express even when December is the month of peak tourist season in Goa. Really would have been helpful and another thing VSG MAS express should also get a change in CC replacing 2 UR coaches with one HA and one 3 AC.

The MP of Udupi has expressed her discomfort with KR and complained to Minister of Railways about KR neglecting coastal Karnataka and not introducing new trains, so its high time that it should be merged in IR.

But regarding Goa I should say KR has done much better job than SWR. My personal opinion is that VSG LD should be given to KR. With SWR they only care about the port at VSG and nothing more than that.
