To adjust for multiple fuel price increases in recent months, Careem has raised its rates in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad.

In an email sent to customers, the company said:

With multiple fuel price hikes, there has been a direct and indirect impact on our Captains’ cost of doing business. Captains are the driving force which enable safe, affordable and comfortable mobility for customers.

In light of the above, we have implemented a cost adjustment in Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad to ensure your Captains continue to serve you while fostering their livelihood. We appreciate the trust you have placed in us and continue to provide a reliable service.

Increasing Fuel Prices:

In the last six months, the price for petrol has gone from Rs. 72.5 to the current Rs. 81.5. While static prices have benefited customers, the drivers have become increasingly irate at the razor thin margins.

‘If it weren’t for the bonuses on completing a set number of rides per week, I wouldn’t break even’, said a Careem driver. ‘It’s a long overdue step’, said another driver while appreciating the move.

Now it remains to be seen whether Uber follows suit.
