RTA, Careem celebrate 1 million bike trips

The Careem BIKE service announced that it has registered one million trips. The milestone strengthens Dubai’s efforts to transform itself into the world’s most bicycle-friendly city and raise use of sustainable forms of mobility.

To celebrate the milestone, RTA and Careem awarded a free one-year subscription to the rider who registered for the service’s millionth trip and the rider with the most frequent trips. Furthermore, all bike customers can buy daily passes for the service for a reduced price on 24 and 25 December. The price for the daily pass on these days has been reduced from AED 20 to AED 1.

The Careem BIKE service supports Dubai’s efforts to promote sustainable mobility, reduce energy consumption and pollution, and offer a short (first mile and last-mile) connection service that helps public transportation users reach their final destinations. The service also contributes to realising the Dubai leadership’s vision to become the world’s best city to live and work in.

Through the Careem BIKE app, users have 24x7 access to affordable membership options that range from daily to yearly subscriptions.

Eng. Maitha bin Adai, CEO of Traffic and Roads Agency, RTA said:

"This announcement is a testament to the success of our 'First and Last-Mile strategy’, which is based on three pillars: sustainability, shared mobility and safety of users. It fits well with RTA's objectives of making its roads and transit means friendly to all and boosts integration with public transport means and promotes shared and mass transport."

Bassel Al Nahloui, MD of Mobility, Careem, said:

"We are very proud to have achieved this milestone of one million Careem BIKE trips. We are constantly working on providing our customers with the best and most efficient services and micro-mobility is a great way of transportation that is both convenient and safe for short trips, helping get our customers to their destination from their first to the last mile".
