Street Traffic in DownTown Dhaka Downtown is extremely crowded, and the fastest and cheapest method of transportation is still: the rickshaw. Fares range between 15 cents and one dollar, depending upon how far you are going. Most of the time, it's about 25 cents. The carriages themselves are colorful and ornate, with intricate drawings on the sides and back of the Rickshaw.. Riding in them is a pleasure, mostly because they stroll along back-streets, which don't have cars. It's a peaceful experience, with the wind flowing through your hair, and the gentle sound of bicycle bells ringing around.
