Careem expands its services to Bahawalpur
Furthering its commitment to provide affordable and hassle-free transport services to entire Pakistan, Careem launched its services in Bahawalpur, one of the largest cities in Punjab. Through this launch, Careem wishes to increase the mobility of the region and provide users with safe and reliable transportation services.
