Currently Uber in Lahore is providing Toyota Corolla as their Uber Go car. Which can accommodate four people easily. All the Toyota cars are brand new or not older then 2014 models. We have talked to some of the Uber partners and they said that Uber is planning to add some big cars soon.
Base price is Rs.100 which will be like service charges. And Uber Go will cost you Rs.13/km along with Rs. 3.70/Minute. Remember that the minimum fare will be Rs. 150. And in case of cancellation you’ll be charged Rs. 150. The pricing module is very cheap if we compare it to the rickshaws running on the streets of Lahore. We hope that Uber will continue this pricing module for long period of time. But it all depends on the pricing of petrol. Uber has another awesome feature of splitting fare. If you want to deploy American system on the fare with your friends just tap on split fare and Uber will split the fare and all of you will be charged equally from your accounts.
