The e-Commerce industry in Pakistan has shown an excellent growth over the last few years. After the introduction of 3G and 4G-LTE services in the country, the people are taking a keen interest in the online services. The international online brands like Uber and Careem have also recently entered the Pakistani market. And now, after the success of the online car-taxi services, a local startup has introduced Pakistan’s first motorcycle taxi service, namely Cargar Cab.
The first of its kind taxi service is presently available to the citizens of Islamabad and Rawalpindi only. Cargar Cab offers its clients with easy solutions to the expensive car cabs. It is an environment-friendly taxi service. To book a Cargar cab, simply visit their taxi stand at the G-9 and F-8 Kachehri Metro Stations.
The charges of each ride are Rs. 15 per kilometer. The service charges are Rs. 20 only. The company has the plan to launch an Android application and web-based booking service. Moreover, it also aims to introduce car cabs in the future.
Cargar offered free rides to the customers for the first three days after its launch in Islamabad and Rawalpindi however, this offer is no more available. While talking to MORE Magazine, Cargar CEO Faran Ahmed said that the company will soon launch its services in Lahore and Karachi. He went on to say that the people are appreciating Cargar and we are receiving positive remarks.
“Cargar is restoring the economy. Join hands to save energy and strengthen the economy with Cargar. Have a cost-effective and time-saving journey with our smart motorbike-cabs,” said the company.
To maximize the safety of the passengers, Cargar has made it necessary to wear a helmet during the ride. Let’s see if this new taxi service can compete with Uber, a-Taxi, and Careem.
