She Auto comes with an Android Tablet which shows speed, location and fare to passengers.

The unique feature of She Auto is that, it will come with an Android Tablet which will give real-time information on speed, location, time and fare to travellers. Free internet will be available in the vehicle. The commuters can locate the nearest vehicle through mobile app.

Almost all the drivers who were servicing under women-friendly auto project, will be migrated to She Auto project. The driver of She Auto will also have ID cards and a special police cell has been created to monitor the auto drivers.

Drivers of good conduct and character have been selected after a detailed background inquiry through police stations and beat officers of Janamaithri community policing scheme,” said City Police Commissioner R Sparjan Kumar to IE.
