Swvl aims to revolutionise the Pakistani commute system, and this claim is not just an empty promise. 

As part of Swvl’s prehype campaign, influencers were to ask their followers the following question, “What can you get in Rs20?” We got some very interesting responses, e.g. “kuch bhi nae”, “fries”, “ammi ki maar”, “cocomo”, “lays”, “podina raita”and not surprisingly no one mentioned travel. Interestingly, of all the items mentioned no one mentioned any service provided to people for Rs20. In today's global crippling economy Swvl provides a bus hailing service for just Rs20.
