Careem Bus launches in Cairo

Careem Bus began operations in Cairo yesterday. The bus service is accessible through the Careem Bus app and covers routesstretching across Downtown Cairo, Maadi, Six October and the Fifth Settlement. Fares are fixed at 60-70% less than a regular Careem ride, Menabytes reports. Careem launched the service after market research found 40% of the Egyptian population is inadequately served by transportation options, according to Hadeer Shalaby, Careem Bus’ director. The ride-sharing company ultimately aims to have 2,000 buses on its platform.
