Karachi gets new online taxi service

July 15, 2019
 

A new online taxi service has launched in Karachi for people looking for affordable transport. It is called Siayara.

Siayara Director Syed Aamir Hussain says it is the first Pakistan-based ride hailing service. The aim is to provide affordable transport to the city’s residents.

“Initially, we have started with 2,000 cars divided into four categories – eco-mini, eco-, eco-plus and eco-business – with reasonable fares,” Hussain said, adding that there is no peak factor on the rides and no hidden charges.

It is a 24-hour service.

You can call on 021-111-100-500 to call yourself a car or download the Siayara mobile application from PlayStore.

Comparing the fares offered by Siayara with those of other ride hailing services, Hussain said a minimum of Rs15 per kilometer is charged if you use an eco-mini vehicle, which is Rs3-Rs4 less than what other services charge for the same kind of vehicle.

The base charge is Rs17/km for eco-, Rs18/km for eco-plus and Rs26/km for eco-business.

The same price difference applies to all categories when compared to other taxi services, he said.

The company also plans to launch a motorcycle service after three months, Hussain said.

    Appreciable step. We badly needed a Pakistan-based service. Why allow Uber, Careem, or other international giants to make revenue from us! Why not do it ourselves! Really happy to know about Siayara.

    Good Step provided the operations can be run with dishonesty and criminal minded drivers can be avoided.

    In Pakistan all these Taxi Services just want to generate revenue by fooling the innocent Pakistanis. Uber, Careem and now the new one Siayerra they don’t care about their RIDERS/DRIVERS and even the Passengers. There were so many bad incidents occurred in Pakistan and we really can’t afford a further line up of the same. Government Authorities must think about this aspect before giving them a LICENCE TO KILL only for the sake of increasing revenue in terms of TAXES!!! Thanks
