Rickshaw is most popular mean of Transport in absence of reliable and quality Public Transportation System in the city. These 3 wheeler VESPA of Italy and assembeled in Pakistan can carry max 3 Passangers and videly used by peoples specially females traveling alone prefer Rickshaw over Taxi's because the Drivers LALA (means the Brother) are Reliable.

Best and safest way to get to the city from the airport is the White Radio Cab. These are brand new airconditioned vehicles, There are many Taxi Companies Operationg at karachi Airport like Metro Cab, White Cab, red Top etc. The rates are same, Rs. 10/- per Taxi (Fixed) Plus Rs.15 per kilometer.

From Anywhere in the city to Airport at fixed Rate of Rs.350/00 (US$6.00)
Call 111 789 786 for White Cab
