Saturday Photohunters Theme: BLUE

Mumbai's BLUE Cool Cabs

Click on image to view full size
Unlike the yellow taxis with the black top, Mumbai's blue cool cabs with silvery white tops are air-conditioned and have electronic meters. So the cabbie can't fool you if you are unaware of the meter conversion rates. They are more comfortable than the yellow and black analog metered taxis and the ride costs a little extra, which is worth every rupee in the hot and humid Mumbai weather.
Also, now there are private yellow cabs, blue cabs and cabs exclusively for women driven by women too.


  1. What kind of cars are the cabs? They don't look like anything that is available in the US.

  2. Seems good all round - particularly cabs for women who might feel vulnerable.

  3. Richies - The cabs in the picture are Tata Indica's, an Indian make.

  4. Blue. Sky blue? Taxi blue. I never saw a blue one until today.

  5. Oh I love the sight of those blue cabs.

  6. That was great - very pretty color for taxis. :)

  7. Those are nice blue taxis. Good take on the theme.

  8. I think it's a good idea for the female passengers been driven around by female drivers :)
