Currently, Uber is available in Pakistan’s 5 key cities, Karachi, Hyderabad, Lahore and the twin cities of Islamabad and Rawalpindi. Uber’s innovative technology connects riders with drivers at the touch of a button. Whether you’re heading out with friends, traveling on business, or exploring the city, Uber now provides an affordable, safe and reliable way to get across Gujranwala.

Speaking about the launch, General Manager Uber Pakistan Mr. Safee Shah said, “We are proud to launch in Gujranwala which we feel is another great market in Punjab with great potential. We have set the standard for connecting people to world-class transport at the touch of a button and moving millions around the world every day. This launch is very exciting for us, and is aligned with our expansion plans in the country and goal to continue to provide people with safe, reliable and affordable transportation.”

He added, “By offering a friendly and reliable complement to existing transport options, we can help improve urban mobility in Pakistan while creating new, fruitful opportunities for driver-partners. Ultimately, we hope to reduce the strain on the city’s roads, and minimize the environmental impact of traffic congestion that is part of a growing economy.”
