I said it, didn't I?

Don't wanna jump the gun, nor sound gleeful, but then hey, I predicted it. I had earlier pointed to commuters switching mode of transport due to the auto fare hike.

Seems its happened, at least on the first day. TOI reports, 'On Sunday, autorickshaw drivers across the city had to undergo an acid test of sorts. Day 1 of hiked fares elicited a plethora of responses from commuters. While Sundays normally happen to be low-business days for the drivers, August 1 turned out to be an extremely dry day for many. On a lazy Sunday, Bangaloreans chose to hop onto buses instead. In fact, buses to the central business district areas saw a good number of commuters.'

Like I said, the market has inherent correcting mechanisms within. Wish more people saw it. Even the auto-fellas.
