Auto Rickshaws in India
1 of 18
Auto rickshaws or "three-wheelers" are the cheapest and most common means of hired transportation in India. They are very handy for short-distance travel in cities, especially since they can weave their way through small alleys to bypass larger cars stuck in travel jams. With the latest Bollywood tunes playing on the radio and the uninhibited honking, it's sure to be a ride for the senses!
