Careem, the UAE-based car booking app, recently launched its services in Al Wakrah.
This new market is set to benefit from Careem’s range of convenient transportation services that will include the Economy option upon its launch. “The expansion is a testament to the increasing demand for a safe, comfortable and affordable ride in Qatar.” said Ibrahim Manna, GM Emerging Markets, Careem. “In less than six months we managed to double our fleet in the market and are growing by 30% month on month. We are dedicated to serving the ever-growing transportation needs in Qatar and, in the process, opening new avenues of employment in more cities.” He added: “In the coming years, Qatar will assume a greater significance for our operations, especially as the country is geared towards hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022 and expanding its tourism sector. Generating employment, strengthening the country’s transportation ecosystem and engaging with local communities will be at the heart of our efforts.”
