The wait is over as the one of the best and cheap auto ride-hailing service Uber Technologies Inc is set to dispatch its “UberGo” service in Karachi on August 25.

Initially the low-cost UberGo service will  serve Clifton, Saddar Town, Jamshed Town, Gulshan-i-Iqbal Town, Liaquatabad, North Nazimabad, Gulberg Town, Malir Town and Korangi.

Head of Pakistan Expansion Zohair Yousafi said, “Thousands of people have already downloaded the app in Karachi in anticipation. We like to say that cities choose us, instead of Uber choosing cities.”

“The response has been incredible in Lahore, so we are extremely excited to be launching in Karachi. Anyone can now enjoy an affordable, reliable and safe ride at the push of a button thanks to UberGO. The competitive price means using UberGO is the perfect option for anyone wanting to get around the city,” Yousafi added.

Ordinarily UberGO vehicles include the Suzuki Swift, Toyota Vitz, Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic and other equivalent vehicles, whereas payment options include cash as well as the usual electronic payment options.

It was announced that during the primary few days of the starting week in Karachi, trips will be free in celebration of the expansion.

Uber Pakistan said each driver will go through a thorough screening process before they can use Uber.
