The popular ride hailing service, Careem, has decided to cut down the fare charges on two of its vehicle types, making it more convenient for people.
Earlier this year in January, Careem raised its price rates in few cities in Pakistan due to the rise in fuel prices. This time the service is taking the opposite action by reducing the prices on two of its services, namely Careem Bike and Careem Tezz, its rickshaw service.
The two services were already cheaper than the rest of the car types and the firm has now made it even cheaper. The per kilometer rate and per minute charge of both the services have been modified.
Careem Bike service will now charge Rs 49 for the initial five kilometers and Rs 5 for the additional per kilometer charge with Rs 2 additional per minute charge. Similarly, the second type, Careem Tezz will charge Rs 60 for the first five kilometers with Rs 13 for additional per kilometer charge and Rs 2.5 for additional per minute charge.
Available on both Android and iOS, the service is considered well-received and is the most popular ride hailing app in the country.
