Careem has added 25,000 local Taxis on it’s platform in the twin cities of Rawalpindi and Islamabad. Starting today, customers will see the new “TAXI” car type as an option in their Careem app while booking for a new ride.

This will increase the number of rides for Taxi drivers and reduce the wasteful kilometers spent looking for rides or the hours they spent waiting at taxi stands.

For the customer, it brings ease of hailing to a familiar option at the absolute lowest cost. Customers who wish to ride in Taxis will no longer have to physically go to and look or one, neither would they have to haggle as trip fares will be calculated by the metering system of Careem.

“We welcome all taxis in the twin cities to join our platform. This is yet another step toward fulfilling our commitment towards providing safe, reliable and affordable rides to our customers” said Omer Zabit, the General Manager of Careem in Islamabad.
