Uber is finally launching its services in the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, we have checked this officially.
As indicated by affirmations that we have gotten, the dispatch date of Uber in the twin urban areas is set to be around the finish of April. In any case, Uber couldn’t submit a dispatch date to us as they are still in procedure of settling some very late things.
With this, Islamabadians and Pindiwalas will get to experience Uber in their cities.
This advancement is going give Careem some opposition, which basically implies that every one of the discounts and promotions — that were accessible to Lahore and Karachi until further notice — will arrive in the capital city also.
Also, Careem is working in Islamabad, Rawalpindi for a long while now. Nonetheless, since they were the main ride-hailing administration accessible in the city, the greater part of rebates and advancements never made it to Islamabad. With Uber’s dispatch here, this will change.
Safee Shah, General Manager for Uber in Pakistan, while speaking with ProPakistani said that his company has major plans for 2017.
Uber’s chief in Pakistan confirmed that his company is all set to expand to maximum number of tier-1 and tier-2 cities before the year end.
He said that the Pakistani market is super receptive and the response that Uber received in this market is beyond their calculations and expectations.
“Our biggest challenge is to meet the demand”, he said.
“So for instance there are countries with 10 million population, that’s like one city in here,” explained Safee while telling us the potential that exists as well as the challenges of expanding operations in Pakistan.
Uber said that it has already established a good fleet for Islamabad and Rawalpindi and number of cars will only grow with time.
Uber is likely to offer a launch promotion here as well, but we don’t have much details on that as of yet.
