DHAKA: Uber, the world’s largest on-demand ridesharing company, has released data on how Dhaka has relied on its services on New Year’s eve. Even on one of the busiest nights of the year for Uber, the company provided a reliable ride to and from celebrations, for anyone, anywhere at the push of a button.
Arpit Mundra, General Manager, Uber Dhaka said, “New Year’s Eve is one of the busiest nights of the year for Uber across the globe. Our goal was to ensure our riders can get a reliable ride at the tap of a button instead of getting behind the wheel.
“Thousands of riders chose Uber, considerably reducing the congestion on this busy night and choosing a safe way to get to and from their New Year’s celebrations. This change in commuting behaviour is at the very core of our efforts towards decongesting Dhaka’s roads”.
