Careem, the region’s leading ride-hailing service in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Turkey and Pakistan, has announced the expansion of its services into the Republic of Iraq. With the introduction of Careem’s ride-hailing services in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, residents will be introduced to a dynamic, safe, and affordable new mode of transportation.
Using Careem’s mobile application-based service, residents of Baghdad can now order rides 24/7 via the app and, through GPS technology, can be picked up and dropped off at the exact locations of their choosing.
Through flexible payment options – including cash, credit card, or Careem credit – the company helps make getting around more convenient. Furthermore, by employing local Captains and creating new job opportunities for Iraqi citizens, Careem is moving closer toward its goal of creating one million jobs across the Middle East and North Africa by 2018.
Careem officially commenced its operations in Baghdad today (Monday), with plans to expand in more cities across Iraq in the near future, the Saudi Gazette reported.
Established in 2012, Careem now operates in more than 90 cities across more than 13 countries, and boasts over 15 million users and 500,000 Captains (drivers) in the broader Middle East, Turkey and Pakistan region.
