Ride-sharing platform Uber is planning on resuming its card payment services for their customers in Bangladesh.
According to the annual report, users of Dhaka were the busiest with most late-night trips and office-hour trips taken through Uber.
Ride-sharing platform Uber has been fined US $14 million recently for threatening cancellation fees it never charged and overstating fare estimates on some rides in Australia.
The popular ride-sharing platform recently made the announcement as it celebrated 6 years of operations in Bangladesh.
Uber Bangladesh recently suspended hundreds of riders on its platform temporarily.
Ride-hailing service has been operating in Bangladesh for almost six years. It has been an integral part of the public transport ecosystem in major metropolises in Bangladesh.
