Recently, cab hailing service culture introduced in Pakistan in the form of Uber, Careem and other services has made public transportation easy, convenient and to some extend even odourless.
Read on to know the (very short) list of reliable cab services that are currently working in Pakistan.
New to Pakistan, InDriver is making fresh waves in the ride hailing industry for us. The app removes the problem of cash or card and drop visibility. In fact, you get to pick the car, driver and even the fare!
Once you signup and want to book a ride, select you pick and drop and mention other things like wait time if any or if you require a car seat etc. The app will show you an approx charge and gives you a space to make an offer as well. Once you proceed with the request, you will get available options of cars which are ready to take you.
This screen shows you the car model, driver rating, picture, distance and the all important his counter offer of his charges. Here you can take your pick and the car will be on its way.
Payment is via cash only, there is no wallet system.
InDriver is available for intercity routes. and you can add additional stops for each ride so the fare is calculated accordingly.
Careem is available in Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Peshawar, Hyderabad, Multan, Quetta, Sialkot, Gujranwala, Faisalabad, Sargodah, Abbottabad and Mardan.
This taxi service is much more like Uber as it is also majorly operated by a mobile app (web portal exists too). However, it should be noted here that they have webportal as well.
Careem offers its cab hailing service in and between cities both. You can pay via cash, card or wallet. With Careem, users have the options of Bike, mini car, Go, Go+ and Business cars. There is Air too but only for Lahore city maybe. If you wish to travel between cities, Careem has opened the option for that as well, but its limited.
To book a ride, register/sign in, find your destonation and pick-up location, choose a vehicle type, select a payment option and press Chalo! Careem is available to use via iOS, Android and Web platform.
Careem functions as a super app also. They offer Food delivery, hyper delivery, send & receive credit and of course the car as well.
Uber has packed their bags from Karachi, Islamabad, Faisalabad, Peshawar, and Multan – only available in Lahore.
Uber is next in line of cab hailing services in Pakistan. It is an internationally renowned company used for booking taxi rides via smartphone apps. To call a ride, simply register/sign-in, set a drop location and adjust your pickup location.
Uber offers Rickshaw/Auto, Mini and Go cars. There is tiny info symbol next to the car type which shows the charges and breakdowns.
Uber app is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone users. You pay via cash, card or UberPay (wallet)

Hi Sulaiman, Hope you’re doing great!
Can you please connect me with the Marketing Department of Roamer.pk. I have something to discuss. Please email me at [email protected].
cab hailing services like Uber, Careem are doing great but both have non professional drivers and both have leggy UI. Now there’s a new player in the market named CARRUBA and i’m using their services and i loved it and most importantly they have less fare than its competitors.
Will vet the service and include it here soon
