Ride-hailing services offer great convenience at a marginal cost. There has been a considerable increase in the use of these services in Pakistan in recent times. New data shows that a considerable number of people are using such apps in the country.
According to a survey carried out by Gallup and Gilani Pakistan, 8 million (8%) of Pakistani adults have claimed that they use these services once a month at least, while 69% of the respondents said that they have never used ride-hailing apps.
The representative sample included both men and women from all parts of the country. The following question was asked in the survey:
Please tell approximately how much you use car-hailing apps/services like Uber/Careem/Bykea?
Below are the results for the survey:
- 8% – once a month
- 3% – once every 3 months
- 2% – once in 6 months
- 2% – once a year
- 12% – sometimes
- 69% – never
- 4% – didn’t wish to respond
The usage of these ride-hailing apps is increasing rapidly, however, due to the fluctuating economy, it is becoming slightly expensive for Pakistanis to use such services.
