Uber launches ride-sharing again

 Ride-Sharing Uber has re-launched the service in the wake of the Coronavirus infection situation. They say Uber's service has been launched as per the instructions of the government and BRTA.

A Uber spokesperson in Bangladesh said on Wednesday, "We have re-launched UberX, Premier and rental car services as per the directions of the Bangladesh government and Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA). We believe that Uber will provide an alternative to safe and reliable movement for riders during this challenging time.

However, a spokesman for Ride Sharing said the government had not made any decision on launching Uber's motorcycle service.

The Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) issued an order on March 31 banning the transport of passengers on motorcycles through the Ride-Sharing Service due to the rising epidemic of coronavirus in the country. The service has banned passenger transport on motorcycles.

After that, the government announced a lockdown for a week from April 5 and issued a circular on April 4. The movement of planes, launches and trains including public transport was stopped in this lockdown. 

However, the Department of Road Transport and Highways has conditionally allowed public transport to operate in all city corporation areas of the country, including Dhaka, from 8 am to 6 pm on Wednesday, April 7, until further notice in an emergency notification. It was informed in that notification.

Uber has also resumed its service, according to the government.
