Careem Bus Service Launches in jeddah
Careem, the famous ride hailing app, has launched a new 13-seat small bus service in Jeddah.
The buses will be available between 7am and 8pm.
The price per trip is between SR 3 and SR 5 depending on the route and is 60 to 70 percent cheaper than the Careem car service.
The Careem Bus app can be downloaded from Google Play or iTunes.
Customers will be able to check the availability of the bus via the app, monitor its arrival and secure a seat. Walk-on passengers will also be accepted.
The service currently only accepts cash, but soon passengers will be able to pay via several payment methods, such as the Careem wallet on the app, or by a registered credit card.
The three routes within Jeddah upon launch are Tahlia Street Loop, Prince Sultan Road north-south-north and Hira Street east-west-east.
