The distance and time structure of Tk 22 for every kilometre and Tk 3 a minute would be followed during the rides to be provided under UberIntercity.
The service will be helpful for those looking to make a business trip or factory visit outside the city or head out with friends, or simply craving a visit to their hometowns, the company said in a statement.
For a one way trip, there will be a return fare automatically applied once a trip ends outside Dhaka service area. The return fare will be charged according to the distance travelled in Gazipur or Savar area.
