Swvl expands to Jordan with new product targeting businesses

Ride-hailing app Swvl is expanding to Jordan with Swvl Business, a new product that offers tailored bus routes and schedules for businesses, according to MenaBytes. Swvl appears to also be gearing up to launch its regular bus-hailing services in Amman, which is currently listed as one of the cities where the service is available despite no routes being operational. The Cairo-born startup is also experimenting with other services in its markets such as carpooling in Kenya and intercity bus rides in Pakistan, and is currently working to expand into other Middle East markets.
