How our lives are getting transformed by Careem and Uber?

Isn’t it a blessing when a hassle-free, safe, reasonable and AC-filled ride is one tap away? Truly it is. Remember the time when going to somewhere considered extremely annoying especially when you knew you have a parade waiting in finding a suitable vehicle to move you. It was a time when you had to pay extra charges, compromise on the quality and bear irritating tempers of auto and taxi drivers to reach your destination.

That time was awfully difficult. Finally, the days of standing at the corner of a street and waiting for a rickshaw or taxi have ended. Thanks to Careem, Uber and other ride-sharing services who have completely transformed our travel priorities. This is the reason; we are getting excessively dependent on these ride-sharing services. Just imagine, no Careem and Uber right now, No way, this is too scary!

The interesting and stress-free thing is these ride-sharing services have something for all. If you have a family of four and want a decent car with AC, you can go with Careem/ Uber Go but want a comparatively cheaper with no AC requirement then they have a better option of ‘Mini’. Usually not available in Uber but exists for a lavish and luxurious ride, UberX is an over-the-top option. Careem has the same car types as Careem Go+ and Business.

But, one can’t underestimate Uber Auto or Careem Tezz when every car type has a peak surcharge of up to 2.0 and the only affordable option you left is Autoing. However, this is not the only case. Most people opt for Auto rides purposefully because of the fares and easy access sometimes. Also, Careem is always easy to get and pay if you are a lone rider.

Every day, countless of students and office goers are taking Careem Bikes to reach their destination reasonably and swiftly. Recently, Uber has also introduced bikes as ‘Uber Moto’ and the fares kept low for promotional purposes.

Careem has extended its services to Karachi - Hyderabad. Now, having a quick call to Hyderabad won’t panic you. You can book a Careem and reach Hyderabad without getting overly stressed at Al-Asif Square.

Both Careem and Uber are truly dedicated to providing better and improved service. Several new options keep popping up on the app on a routine basis. Uber has recently added many new features that are drivers friendly and also feasible for riders. Plus, Uber has relatively less peak surcharge hours then careem.

Again, thanks to Careem and Uber, for taking the burden off and relieving us from travel hassles.
