Uber continues to showcase its reinforced commitment to Pakistan, developing a range of services to meet riders, drivers and cities’ needs and standards. However, the bikers being the male segment of our society only, the female passengers would certainly opt for a rickshaw or car instead of traveling at the back of a motorbike with an unknown man.
