Hi Guys! Hope you are all fine and oh wait… Happy Eid-Ul-Azha Mubarak to all. This is the first day of Bakra Eid 2016. So now let’s come to the point. There is a boom of cab service you can find in Pakistan especially in Lahore. I have already explained the way you can book a ride on them easily and  in less price. It includes Albayrak ATaxi, Careem, Uber and EasyCab. Now the question is that many people are asking me for a link to Careem Partner App that they cannot find on the internet. Here I will give you the link careem partner app but it would be useless if you’re not registered with them. Because it asks for mobile number registered with it and pin code that will be set after your first sign in. Anyways, even then I am going to share you an android app apk with you. Not for iOS as of today.

Guide For Getting a better taxi ride in Lahore

The general environment of Lahore is changing day by day. People are getting more techy because of the recent IT boom in the city. There are more IT companies are being registered in Punjab as compared to other provinces of Pakistan. It is the proof that Punjab Information Technology Board is very serious about getting a better and smart lifestyle to its citizens. Due to increased population of human and vehicles, people are becoming tired of driving their cars on the roads just because of rush and some psychological issues.

Let’s come to the Taxi Business in Lahore. There are 3 major Taxi companies in Lahore. These are Careem (Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad), Uber (Lahore, More Cities Soon) and A-Taxi (Lahore). All have the nose to nose tough competition in getting a market share. But make sure that those companies who are linked with IT industry will get more market share. Careem and Uber are all set and working through mobile platform where as A-Taxi is not.

When you are ready to move anywhere through taxi, you first compare the prices. So this guide will help you in getting a cheap and comfortable taxi and some tips also.

If we compare the tariff of these companies, Careem is a bit expensive than A Taxi and Uber. Uber is cheaper than Careem.

How To Choose Cheaper Taxi?

There are 2 ways you can book a ride for your within city trip. One is through the company’s app and second is to call on their hotline. A Taxi and Careem can book you a taxi through its hotline number where as Uber doesn’t allow it. You will have to use its app to call the taxi.

Booking a ride through hotline:

You can call Careem at 042-111-CAREEM and for A Taxi, you can call 042-111-961-961.

How To Sign UP?

Click Here for signing up to Careem. Click Here to singing up to uber.

Fares and Tariff:

In regular tariff, uber is more cheaper than Careem. If you have a Careem promotion code, then it becomes cheaper than Uber. So always check for the Careem Promotional Codes before booking any of two rides. For the promotional code, you can sign up for Careem newsletters. The email you the codes that can make your ride more cheaper. In Uber, if it is your first time to take a ride, please call the person who have already uber installed in their phone and account is active. Ask him to provide you his personal invitation code. Apply that code in your uber app’s Promotion page and you will get a first ride free worth up to 500PKR. After your complete ride, your friend will also be rewarded. To find your personal invitiation code, click here and share it with your friends so that you could also earn more free rides.

Careem’s Business and Economy Rides:

Minimum fare for Careem economy is 200 and business is 250. Sometimes using a promotional code, your business ride can be less in price than economy. So make sure that you check your fare both in business and economy and do put your promotional code. Promotional codes do not work on Economy rides.

REMEMBER, DON’T LET YOUR DRIVER WAIT. IT WILL COST YOU.

Tips For Using Uber:

  1. Do not let your driver wait as it costs you.
  2. When taking a free ride, do not cancel the ride FOR ANY REASON if your ride has been accepted.
  3. Some people cancels the ride when they see a small car is coming to them. Make sure it will lose your free trip. So beware.
  4. Uber accepts cars from 1000CC to onward and the car is not old enough. So don’t worry.
  5. Uber’s cars are always good in AC. If you get a malfunctioning AC in your car, you can complain to them on their twitter or facebook account.

Example of Getting A Ride

I would like to go from Liberty Market to Shaukat Khanam Hospital in Johar Town.

Total distance is around 14KM if I go by Canal Bank road. Make sure we have Careem’s promotional code which makes your 2 rides at 50% discount. The code is STUCKPAK. For uber, we have friend share code that makes your trip totally waive off until 500 PKR. And A-Taxi doesn’t give discounts.

Below is the simple chart for better understanding.

NAME OF COMPANY
Careem Uber A-Taxi
Regular Fare (PKR) 481-553 320-393 Around 500
Discounted Fare (PKR) 240-276 0 Not Available
Distance 14KM 14KM 14KM
  • Bases on the above chart, we can see that if you have a free ride available in your uber account, it is best option
  • If you don’t have a free ride available in uber then you must check your email for this month’s promotional code of careem. You can contact them via facebook and twitter for more.
  • If you have a careem code, It is best option among three.
  • If you don’t have a careem code and a free ride, then Uber is more cheaper than other two.

Based on my personal experience of Uber and Careem, I like both the services. But I prefer Careem because it is more professional than Uber. I will not recommend A-Taxi because I can’t guide them the way actually I am on the phone. Because they don’t have an app for this.

I hope someday there will be an app which will compare the fare of Careem, Uber and any third company. Anyone who creates it, please remember my this post as this is my idea and label me the co-founder. :)
