Sanjeev - I would say that your post should have read - public transport way to go after auto fares go up.

Commuter Rail is an option for longer range connectivity (from sub urban areas), where as autos are for local, mostly last mile connectivity. BMTC is the likely beneficiary of high auto fares, as people may prefer Buses for longer commute in the city. From that angle, I would say higher auto fares are a good thing.

Even with commuter rail, you would need last mile connect. Could happen via Buses, or Auto, or both.
