Is Careem really offering free rides for a whole year?

Someone climbed a lonely Careem billboard and spray-painted it, asking for free rides. Here is how Careem responded

October 20, 2017

Wednesday morning at the Careem office was quieter than usual. Initially, we had failed to comprehend or react to the situation because by all means it was the first time such an incident had occurred. Under the cover of the night, someone had climbed a lonely Careem billboard on Korangi Road and spray-painted their heart out. We know nothing about this namaloom citizen, except that they have a burning desire to acquire… free Careem rides.

Our mysterious vandal is not political, nor does s/he want to advertise himself. Instead, s/he wants free rides. One, two, one hundred? We do not know. We do know, however, that the person in question is not afraid to make a statement about the things that matter the most: destroying private property, climbing up billboards and demanding free rides out of Careem.

The internet, as usual, had its own strong opinions:

Some were sympathetic towards the person


It just didn't stop there


Of course, we miss our dear billboard, but what became clear to us was that Careemers had reached out to us in the boldest way possible.  It is true that it has taken us four agonisingly long days to find a response to the incident, but we have a feeling Careemers will appreciate this.
