Uber, the global ride-hailing platform that seamlessly connects riders with drivers, in an attempt to extend its commitment towards education development, has collaborated with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization to provide free rides to teachers to and from their respective vaccination centers in Pakistan.

Uber is offering 4 free rides for teachers and educational professionals, travelling to and from one of the dedicated vaccination centers available on the NCOC (National Command and Operation Center) website.

Each ride will have a maximum cap of PKR 300 and this offer will be valid till September 3rd, 2021.

Riders will receive a voucher code via their relevant Department of Education, and will be able to redeem the discount on the app by claiming the voucher.

“Teachers are one of the most integral parts of this society and we at Uber would like to facilitate them with safely getting back to their classrooms.

We are proud to partner with UNESCO to mobilize the teachers in Pakistan and encourage them to get vaccinated,” said Shahid Khan, the new Country Head at Uber Pakistan.
