Uber, the famous ride hailing service, is finally expanding its services in the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, ProPakistani reported.
There is no fix date for the service to launch as yet, but it is expected to be around the end of April, as the company is still in process of finalizing some last-minute things.
Uber coming to the twin cities is going give Careem some competition, that has been operating in Islamabad, Rawalpindi for quite some time now. Since Careem was the only ride-hailing service available in the city, the majority of discounts never made it to people living there. But with Uber’s launch, this is going to change.
Safee Shah, General Manager for Uber Pakistan, said that his company has major plans for 2017. He further added:
“Our biggest challenge is to meet the demand.”
The company, while confirming the launch said that it has already established a good fleet for Islamabad and Rawalpindi and number of cars will only grow with time.
