Careem, the leading ride-hailing service in Pakistan, has announced that it will remove the ‘peak charge’ on its bike and rickshaw categories in Karachi, Islamabad, and Lahore. This move is in response to the recent economic situation in Pakistan, where inflation and global fuel prices are at an all-time high.
The ‘peak charge’ is an AI automated element in the pricing system that is usually applied when a lot of people need a Careem ride at the same time, resulting in higher waiting times. With the removal of the ‘peak charge,’ customers can now avail of safe, reliable, and convenient transportation any time of the day with pocket-friendly rates on the bike and rickshaw categories, without worrying about surging inflation.
Muhammad Imran Saleem, General Manager – Ride Hailing at Careem Pakistan, stated, “We are committed to providing safe, reliable, and affordable transportation services to the masses in Pakistan, especially during such challenging economic times. We understand the financial difficulties faced by people, and our aim is to simplify their lives by providing pocket-friendly transportation options augmented with the same safety and technology we provide in cars.”
Earlier this year, Careem reduced its commissions on multiple car types, including bikes and rickshaws, to improve Captain earnings. Similarly, Careem also resumed bonuses and guarantees, making it even more lucrative for individuals to work on the platform.
