Time Travel with TukTuk

What comes to your mind when you want to travel some where, whether it is your daily office ride, friday night party or weekend family trip. There are two important things that comes to your mind which will determine the ultimate  cost you want to pay for your ride.

1) Distance – Distance of your trip. Eg. 100 Km
2) Time – Time taken to travel. Eg. 3 Hours

Today time plays a critical part when commuting and would have a direct impact on your cost of travel. Eg. When you go by bus you pay less because you expect the journey to take much longer than travelling the same distance in  a helicopter which cost far more than the cost of the bus fare.

Distance Based Costing

When you hire taxi you pay for the distance you travelled at a pre determined rate. This is called the distance based cost or per Km  Rate. All conventional Taxi companies offers  distance based costing for your travel.

Eg. If you travel from Colombo to Kandy your taxi fare will be calculated as follows.
Distance – 100 Km
Rate per Kilometer – LKR 45/=
Total Taxi Fare – 100Km X LKR45 = LKR 4,500*

* In order to facilitate waiting during travel most taxi companies have introduced a waiting charge which will be add added to the total fare based on the time the vehicle is parked or driven below a set speed.

Time Based Costing

Time based taxi fare determines the total taxi fare based on the time taken to travel irrespective of the actual distance travelled.

Eg. If you travel from Kandy to Colombo your Taxi Fare will be calculated as follows.
Time Taken to travel – 180 minutes
Rate per Minute – LKR 20/=
Total Taxi Fare – 180 Min X Rs 20 = LKR 3,600

Time Travel Vs Distance Travel

When you Time Travel your final taxi fare will be variable as a against the Distance based travel coat which will be more fixed nature.
Eg. If you Time Travel during rush hour your travel cost would be more. Likewise if you travel during off peak hours, free ways without traffic conditions the final taxi fare would be less than Distance based cost.

Also the time taken for the trip would be depend on type of vehicle you rent for your travel and the speed at which it could travel in a given traffic or weather condition.

ESTIMATED TRAVEL TIME RENTAL COST

* Extra 5 min included for traffic and other road conditions.

Vehicle Speeds, Travel condition and Cost

Motor Bike (TukDrop Moto Taxi) – LKR 20/= per Minute

Time Taken to travel 1 Km – City:  1 min Rural:1 min  Traffic: 2 Min  Rain: 3 min

Trishaw (TukTuk) – LKR 20/= Per Minute

Time Taken to travel 1 Km – City:  2 min Rural: 1 min Traffic: 3 Min  Rain: 3 min

Car  (TukGo or TukX) – LKR 20 per Minute

Time Taken to travel 1 Km: City:  3 min Rural: 1 min  Traffic: 5 Min Rain: 5 min Free ways: 1min

Examples:
– Moto Bike would go faster than a Car or a Trishaw in a traffic condition.
– Car would be faster in long distance travel and freeways.
– Motor Bike Taxi and Trishaw would be slower in a rainy condition.

TukTuk – Time Travel

When you Time Travel your rides cost would be fully based on time taken for your trip. Many other companies offers vehicle rentals on the basis of months, weeks, days and hours but it is the first time in Sri Lanka TukTuk Network offers taxi rental for your daily rides on per minute basis.  Time Travel offers short term Rental of Moto Bike, Car or Tuk with a Driver for minimum 10 minutes.

Time Travel Cost only LKR 20/= per  minute or LKR 1200/= per hour. No other charges. To use Time Travel download TukTuk app.

What to Know Before You Take a TukDrop Moto Taxi

1. How to find a Motor Bike Taxi in Sri Lanka.
You can only book a TukDrop MotorBike Taxi using TukTuk Passenger app available in both Google and Apple Store.

2. Use the helmet.
It is compulsory wear an helmet when riding. It would advisable always taking the helmet the motari (driver) offers; the roads can be bumpy and legally you can get fined for riding without one.

3. Hold on.
There is a small metal bar behind the seat where most people can hold onto and then comfortably lean back. You will see that Passengers don’t hold onto anything but that still scares me. Also, personal space is a non-issue in some culture; if you feel safer holding onto the driver they will have no problem with it.

4. Don’t worry about how close you are to the driver.
Again, personal space doesn’t exist here. As a Westerner your natural reaction will be to keep your distance and try to avoid sliding forward into the driver (there is nothing separating the two seats) and I would advise you ignore that desire. Firstly, you will not be able to prevent yourself from sliding into the driver. Secondly, it will tire you out and long trips can be quite an ab workout already. Lastly, the driver will think the effort you are putting into avoiding contact is weirder than the actual contact. It’s awkward, believe me, I know, but embrace it; will make moto travel so much easier.

5. Don’t feel bad asking to stop.
I still do this all the time to adjust my pack or take a breath or because my thighs are cramping. Just tap the driver on his shoulder and ask to stop. Most of the time they will know the word in English.

How to pick a driver:

There’s not really a science to picking a driver but I stick to these basics when I’m away from my home and need to rely on someone I don’t know.

1. Price.
Try the TukTuk App and check the estimated cost before you take the  ride. Total amount payable is automatically calculated and details can be checked at the end of the trip. There could be a small variation between the estimated and actual fare due to the route and the time taken for the ride.

2. Gas.
Take a peak at the gas tank meter. Stopping at gas stations, or as I’ve experienced, bars along the way where there’s a jerry can full of petrol, is awkward and unnecessary. So a full tank is a plus.

3. English.
Things can happen along the way while you’re traveling. I speak the local language well, but in an unfamiliar place I am always biased towards the drivers who speak some English.

4. Quality of the equipment.
It might not be a fair measure but I always look to see if the visor on the helmet or the rear-view mirrors is cracked or damaged, an indication that the bike has already been in an accident regardless of how long ago.

5. Size of the driver.
I always feel safer with a man who is larger than me at the wheel because I know that if I shift my body at the wrong moment his weight still cancels out mine. This logic can go the
opposite way too, however. If you really want to avoid contact or you have a lot of luggage, choose a smaller driver.

Finally, I suggest you throw in your headphones to your favorite music, put on your helmet, and enjoy the ride. Once you get the hang of them the motorcycle taxis are a really easy way to get around. Best of all, the views are often breathtaking. Safe travels!
