Uber is planning to launch CNG auto rickshaw services in Chittagong. A spokesperson of Uber confirmed the news to Dhaka Tribune.

However, the date and time of the launch is yet to be announced.

“We do have plans to introduce CNG(compressed natural gas) auto rickshaw service in our platform, primarily in Chittagong.” said a Uber spokesperson, over an email inquiry. 

In recent years, Uber has introduced Uber XL, PREMIER, MOTO, HIRE, and INTERCITY in addition to the original offering of Uber X.

“The new offerings on the Uber platform will give riders the choice to pick a ride option that best suits their needs, budgets, and lifestyles.

“CNG auto rickshaw is an environmentally-friendly, and affordable option for riders.” mentioned the spokesperson while explaining why Uber plans to introduce CNG service. 

“Bangladesh is the largest Moto market for Uber, and Dhaka is our ‘Moto Capital’. With more than 100,000 driver partners, and nearly 2,500 weekly sign ups to drive on Uber, Bangladesh is expected to contribute 25% of Uber’s growth in the region in 2019,” the spokesperson added. 

The Uber spokesperson also said: “Every day we are seeing an increasing number of riders using Uber for their daily commute. While we cannot comment on the exact number of trips, and riders currently on the app, we have seen staggering numbers in recent times.”

Uber launched its operations in Bangladesh in 2016. According to Uber, an average of 205 people open Uber app per minute in Dhaka,
