LAHORE, Pakistan: The US-based Online Taxi Service \u2018Uber\u2019 will soon be launched in Pakistan, a transportation facility which will lessen the day-to-day problems of commuters. Initially, the Uber will operate in Lahore but later it will be expanded to other cities as well. With its headquarter in San Francisco, Uber taxi service is currently available in 58 countries and 300 cities around the world. Uber offers a smartphone app to consumers through which they can request taxi-like pickup and drop service. Customers, after placing a request for service, can view the time a car might take to reach him\/her. With the arrival of Uber in Pakistan, people will have more transportation facilities with reliability and safety. However, the Company will have to face a competition with already launched Turkish Albayrak Group\u2019s \u2018A-Taxi\u2019 service and the popular car booking service \u2018Careem\u2019. Since the Punjab government has initiated the construction of Orange Line Metro train in Lahore following the successful launch of Metro Bus service, the world renowned Cab Services like Uber will further offer commuters relaxed and hassle-free travel option especially to people in the provincial capital.
