Like most cities in India, the public transport is totally inadequate in Chennai too. Though the State Transport, the suburban railway, the MRTS and the Metro serve this metropolis, they are not adequate. Proper planning is not done for intermodal travel or for feeder service to the arteries.
Here is where the ‘Share Autos’ come in. Though unorganized and indisciplined, they seem to fill a gap in the transport system.
This is a long shot of passenger straps / handles of a share auto parked in dark corner of Kutchery road on Christmas eve.
