Uber and Bank of the Punjab have signed an MOU which will enable them to work on getting over 50,000 Green Cab and Yellow Cab Customers to the Uber platform. Hence playing a role in their economic uplift.
Speaking at this event, Safee Shah, GM, Uber Pakistan said:
“The partnership looks forward to build on the flexibility, entrepreneurial opportunity and earning potential of Uber’s innovative technology along with BOP’s financial expertise to bring about a positive change in the earnings of Green Cab & Yellow Cab customers”
Mr. Salman Alam Shah, Head Retail Finance Division, Bank of Punjab said on this occasion:
“BOP had provided Employment Opportunities to thousands of unemployed youth through Chief Minister Punjab Apna Rozgar (Green Cab) and Yellow Cab Schemes. Now, our program is designed to equip our Green Cab Yellow Cab Customers with the right to succeed as entrepreneurs and our arrangements with Uber will enable them to earn more income for their families.”
Uber is currently available in Lahore and Karachi and is claiming to provide earning potential to individuals looking to drive part time or full time. Uber claims that over 70% of current drivers are individuals managing their own business and setting their own schedules. This latest agreement between Bank of Punjab and Uber will allow both these parties to extend the reach of this program to more users.
