Washington: Uber, the leading cab and ride-sharing service, has closed its operations in Pakistan. Online taxi service company Uber has decided to close its operations in Pakistan, while Uber’s sub-service Cream Online Taxi app will continue to work.
On Tuesday, Uber Pakistan informed its users that “We have decided to shut down the Uber app in Pakistan.”
Uber’s spokesperson said in a statement that ‘after the closure of the Uber app, our sub-brand Careem will continue to operate, with the Careem app providing ride-hailing services across Pakistan and earning opportunities for drivers.’
Uber bought rival company Carem for $3.1 billion in 2019, after which it was decided that both companies would operate independently under their names.
It should be noted that in 2022, Uber Pakistan announced to end of its services in five major cities of the country, Karachi, Islamabad, Peshawar, Multan, and Faisalabad, and to date the company has been active only in Lahore. After the recent announcement, the Uber app will no longer be active in Lahore as well.
“We have made the difficult decision that Uber will no longer provide services to customers starting today, April 30,” said an email message sent by Uber to customers on Tuesday.
