A few months ago we saw two giants of the online taxi service encroach their way in Pakistan. One giant being UBER and the other being Careem, ofcourse. Since then, these two taxi service providers have been jostling for customer possession with each other and the latter , Careem came out to be successful.
Careem service which is for now present in the main cities of Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi has lowered it’s prices for Lahore upto 30%. Careem has a product line pricing strategy which includes the economy pricing and the business pricing. The price for a business ride is slightly higher/km than the economy pricing. The reason being that Business Class offers new cars while economy pricing offers old but decent cars of the models 2009,2010 and 2010. The cars available at Careem at mostly Toyota Corolla, Honda City and Suzuki Swift (for what I’ve experienced).
Following is the new pricing scheme after the 30% discount in Lahore.
- Economy Cars now available at Rs 11/km previously Rs 16/km
- Minimum fare is now 150 Rupees
- Waiting Charges/ hour are now 290
- Base rates are the same
So what are you waiting for? Download careem and order a ride so that you can travel around Lahore, the city of gardens. Stay tuned to ITexplorida.com for more news and updates
