Tech­nolo­gies Inc., the US-based on­line taxi dispatch com­pany, has of­fi­cially launched its ser­vices in La­hore. Uber of­fers a free GPS-en­abled mobile app, which al­lows smart­phone users to sub­mit a trip re­quest which is then routed to driv­ers from pri­vate car com­pa­nies within 10 min­utes. All Uber driv­ers have car regis­tra­tion cer­tifi­cates and driv­ing li­cences. They also go through po­lice ver­i­fi­ca­tion and back­ground checks. The driv­ers have to at­tend a manda­tory sex­ual ha­rass­ment sem­i­nar. Op­er­at­ing in 300 ci­ties in more than 60 coun­tries, Uber will be of­fer­ing its ser­vices in Karachi and Is­lam­abad this year.
