Careem Pakistan, the ride-hailing app available in major urban areas of the country, has announced price revision on different ride categories following multiple fuel price hikes over the past one year. However, the revised prices are announced only for Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

According to Careem, the petrol prices have gone up from Rs. 72.5 to 81.5 in the last six months duration. Despite increase in fuel price, Careem carried on with their original prices that proven beneficial for customers but Careem Captains were left with razor thin margins.

A careem Captain said, “If it weren’t for the bonuses on completing a set number of rides per week, I wouldn’t break even.” An other Captain appreciated the decision by saying, “It’s a long overdue step.”

In an email sent to customers, Careem Pakistan said:

With multiple fuel price hikes, there has been a direct and indirect impact on our Captains’ cost of doing business. Captains are the driving force which enable safe, affordable and comfortable mobility for customers.

In light of the above, we have implemented a cost adjustment in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to ensure your Captains continue to serve you while fostering their livelihood. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and continue to provide a reliable service.
