Cabs and Taxi Services in Pune

The history of cab services in Pune dates back to 2005 when air-conditioned taxis known as Cool Cabs were introduced between Mumbai and Pune. Available in mainly old car models like Fiat, Ambassador and Maruti Omni, these Cool Cabs were easily noticeable in their distinct and silver colours. They became an instant hit with the commuters as the fares were cheaper than other air-conditioned private and tourist cabs.
