LAHORE: After only eight months into operation in Pakistan, Uber Technologies is now offering its customers the services of an auto-rikshaw. 

The international global taxi service app giant, on Monday formally launched its new service, uberAUTO, in Lahore.

The service was inaugurated by Punjab Information Technology Board Chairman Umar Saif.

During the inauguration, Saif said: “Initiatives like uberAuto are a reflection of the way in which Lahore embraces technology within its transport industry. Such solutions will make travelling in the city safer as well as more affordable and convenient for the citizens of Lahore.”

The pricing model for uberAUTO, according to the company, is almost 40% cheaper than current prices. It offers a fare of Rs4 per km with a base price of Rs45 and per minute charge of Rs1.

Making a rikshaw ride infinitely safe for travellers, Uber will have all its drivers go through a tough scrutiny process.

UberAuto has been launched in Lahore with a free week offer, which means each Uber rider will get five free uberAuto rides up to Rs80 from October 17 to October 23. –SAMAA/Agencies
