In order to use uberAUTO, a user will need to download the Uber App from any App store and request a ride from the app.

  • right now it seems a lot cheaper than curent Rikshaw fares, lets see what comes out of it in pactice

    • It works. I use to pay using my MasterCard. Check if your card is active for Internet. Your bank’s helpline will be able to assist you.

      • My visa debit card is activated and i always use it for online shopping and it works. But i get error when card payment is selected. I tried to contact Uber and they said send copy of cnic or passport n visa card. If the card works it will be much easier n hassle free from keeping cash n change. Payments will automatically be deducted from account.

  • Dont write wrong fares. How is it possible riding from Arfa Tower to Race Course in Rs. 60. Base charge 45, in Rs. 15 you are covering a distance of 11.5km

    Even if I assume base charge is not included in that price, then the time estimate of 14 min is just impossible for a rickshaw.

  • This just sounds unreal to me. I pay Rs.250 for a 25 minute, 14/15 km ride every day in a traditional Rickshaw. Given Uber’s fare structure, it would only cost me Rs.130. What’s happening?

    • This same thing happened to me when Uber Go recently launched in Karachi. I got free rides but when i make request no car was coming or accepting the request. N if someone did they would have been cancelling. Same Cheating tactics with Uber Auto this time.
