Careem and National Highway and Motorway Police (NH&MP) partnered to conduct road safety training for Careem Captains across Pakistan. Senior officials from the road safety authority in collaboration with the Careem Operation team conducted a series of training in respective cities where Careem operates in.
The defensive drivers’ training focused on spreading awareness about safe driving to avoid accidents, specially designed for Captains to ensure secured ride-hailing practices in Pakistan. Furthermore, it also emphasized saving costs related to vehicle maintenance and fuel consumption, by driving smoothly and steadily.
As part of its commitment to further strengthen Trust and Safety at Careem, it also partnered with NADRA’s e-Sahulat program for making all its Captains’ verification seamless, faster, and much more efficient.
In addition to these partnerships, Careem is dedicated to further improve safety standards offered on its app before and after Captains are on-boarded:
BEFORE YOUR RIDE
- All Captains go through a rigorous screening process and background check.
- Before a Captain arrives, his details are sent to customers, which includes Captain’s photo, name, rating, vehicle type, and plate number.
- Customers are reminded by a message to check this before getting in the ride
- Captains attend mandatory training sessions with instructions and guidance on smooth driving as well as following standard safety and security protocols in the unlikely event of an incident.
