Uber to Cease Operations in Pakistan, Careem to Continue

Uber announced its decision to stop operating its ride-hailing app in Pakistan, with a spokesperson stating that the company will cease its Uber app services in Lahore as of April 30. However, Uber’s subsidiary brand Careem will continue to offer ride-hailing services across Pakistan. This move comes after Uber had acquired Careem in 2019 for $3.1 billion, with both brands initially intending to operate independently.
