It’s a happy news for all the residents of Islamabad and Rawalpindi
Now the wait is over, Uber is all set to launch its Uber Service in twin cities by the end of this month.
The exact date for the launch of services of Uber in Pakistan’s capital city Islamabad and twin city of Rawalpindi has not been announced. But Uber Pakistan confirmed the news with this teaser update on social media:
Islamabad and Rawalpindi, your uberGO is arriving now. It's free all weekend long, use the promo UBERLOVESISB!https://t.co/4tsbahKyVM

Uber’s chief in Pakistan, Mr. Safee Shah also confirmed that their company is ready to expand to maximum numbers of tier-1 and tier-2 cities before the end of this year.
Pakistani market is super receptive and the response that Uber received in this market is beyond their calculations and expectations, he said.
The UAE- based ride sharing company Careem is highly dominating the market of Islamabad and Rawalpindi, so that is why Uber have to beat the competition by giving promotional discounts that were only available in Karachi and Lahore for now.
Earlier in April 2017, Uber announced 20% discounted prices for Lahore and Karachi, which also compelled Careem to launch 20% discount in Karachi and 25% fare reduction in Lahore.
