Careem has expanded into offering more convenience for customers with the growth of its deliveries, payments, and partner services. In Saudi, the Careem Everything App enables over 10 million customers to hail a ride, book a car or order their everyday favorite meals and more.

One of the newest and most exciting mobility services available on the Everything App in Saudi is Careem Bike, which was launched as the first public bike-sharing network in the Middle East and has grown to become one of the largest pedalassist bikes-sharing networks in the world.

Careem Bike was recently launched in Madinah, in partnership with AL MQR Development Company, the investment arm of Madinah Municipality. It’s the first-ever public network of electric bicycles and scooters in Madinah and connects residents and visitors to popular tourist sites, transport links and key districts in the city.

The launch of Careem Bike in Madinah was a pivotal moment for the city’s transport network, with 60 stations built across key areas of the city including Al Mughaisilah, Al Qaswa Garden, AlHijra walkway, As Salam Rd, AlHaram area, Hejaz Railway Museum, Iskan, King Fahd Park, King Fahd Road walk, Qiba Road, Sultana Road and AlTilal. Careem plans to expand this network to include 165 stations across the city and make travel even more convenient for both residents and visitors. Whether you’re looking to uncover the city’s hidden treasures or simply take a trip to the Haram, exploration in Madinah now becomes effortlessly accessible through Careem Bike.

With micro mobility, transport networks become much more connected. E-bikes are perfect for first- and last-mile trips such as moving from a train or bus station to one’s home or place of work.

They effectively close the gap between different transport networks, guaranteeing a smooth and uninterrupted journey. You can ride an e-bike to the bus station and then take the bus to work. You can plan the final journey home from your train journey with an e-scooter.

Over 90 percent of all travel in the GCC is currently built around private car ownership. This heavy reliance on car travel leads to traffic congestion and excessive pollution. One-fourth of CO2 emissions globally are caused just by the transportation sector.

Customers are demanding more eco-friendly transit choices and the government is trying to encourage it. Careem Bike is helping to meet this growing demand from both society and the public sector. Sustainable transport models such as e-bikes and e-scooters reduce the number of cars needed to cater to transportation needs in our cities, and this enables people to save costs on transport while also mitigating the hassle of finding a parking spot or walking to your destination from the parking spot, which can often be time consuming. E-bikes also reduce traffic congestion, particularly during peak hours, and this limits carbon emissions to contribute to a greener environment. People in Saudi enjoy spending time cycling and Careem Bike’s network in Madinah is encouraging even healthier, more active lifestyles. Already, nearly 11,300 residents and tourists in Madinah have traveled around 428,000 kilometers through 96,500 rides on Careem Bikes.
