Dubai-based vehicle for hire company Careem has widened its intercity ride-hailing service from Bahrain to Saudi Arabia, enabling users to book a luxury car ride across cities at their convenience. 

Careem had earlier piloted the service in other markets such as UAE and Egypt, now residents of Bahrain can benefit from booking one-way journeys to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (Dammam, Khobar, Dhahran, Jubail, Buqaiq, Hufof, and Riyadh) for $198 per ride.

“Careem is excited to announce the expansion of its intercity ride-hailing service as a part of the ongoing efforts to improve the everyday lives of the Careem customer. By leveraging our technology, the new intercity service will introduce a convenient means of transporting customers between countries.  As we continue to invest in the Bahraini market, Careem remains committed to broadening our product range to provide convenient transportation solutions within and across cities.”

To book a trip in the new intercity ride-hailing service, customers have to select the ‘Go-To KSA’ category on the Careem app and enjoy a modern luxury car that can accommodate up to 5 passengers.

For both solo travelers and those with family, the options of Careem Intercity ensure that customers are safely accommodated. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the company has prioritized the health and safety of its customers and Captains by implementing numerous safety measures.

“These measures include mandatory face masks, use of hand sanitizer, inviting passengers to sit in the back seat, which was an unfamiliar habit in some countries, and digital payment solutions through the Careem wallet,” Mr. Nuseibeh added.
