The Covid-19 vaccination drive has picked up momentum in Bangladesh with over 76 Million doses administered as on Nov 10, 2021. (Source: Reuters Tracker). 

Uber shares these goals and in order to support the country’s vaccination drive, today we announced our pledge to provide 50,000 free rides worth BDT 1 Crore for citizens travelling to and from vaccination centres across the greater Dhaka area. 

It’s being rolled out to help ensure transportation is not a barrier in getting vaccinated. The initiative is a part of Uber’s global commitment to provide 10 million free or discounted rides to ensure efficient and equitable access to vaccines. 

It’s a privilege to be able to support the Bangladesh Government’s tireless efforts to ensure each and every citizen in the country is vaccinated. Safety has always been a priority at Uber and we are determined to offer our assistance to the local authorities in their efforts to battle COVID-19 across the cities we serve. Mass vaccination is the key to overcoming this pandemic and we are committed to providing safer and timely transport options for people travelling to vaccination centres. This, in turn, will help communities to recover quickly from the pandemic and rebuild their lives.

In addition to supporting the ongoing vaccination drive, these free rides will further boost earning opportunities for Drivers on our platform during these challenging times.
