    • Good tou tab hai k jab it should only be restricted to females riders. Agar males ko bhi allow huwa tou phir it has no purpose. Female drivers should be for female passengers only.

  • Female’s driving as well as old man’s driving is about the same thing. City like Lahore or Karachi which are congested or populated city will be difficult for the women drivers. The majority commuters will like to travel with women driver. The women driver cannot go with commuters in remote areas.

  • Hehehe. 80% Pakistani employees wali company ki Pakistani soch hi hogi. Too much expensive. Fazul service hai. SUb se best uber hai. Uber pure karachi lahore me chalti haim jab k careem k kai no go areas hain karachi mein. Poor service. I hate Careem
