Rickshaw Fare in Bangladesh

October 11, 2014

The tricycle carrier known as rickshaw or cycle rickshaw is the most frequent public transport medium for shorter distance in major cities and all around Bangladesh. However, be noted that in some major roads in Dhaka city and highways, rickshaws are not allowed.

The fare in rickshaw could be estimated using time travelled or distance travelled. The rate would be whichever comes higher.

As a thumb rule, the fare would be 2 BDT (Bangaldeshi Taka) per minute or 2 BDT per 100 metres. The rate is correct as of October 2014 and for later use, every year around 10% inflation increase may be added.
