If you’re a fan of two-wheels, we’ve got good news.
Careem and the Roads and Transport Authority have announced big plans to get 3,500 bikes and 350 smart docking stations across Dubai, the first of its kind in the region and a big step toward making our fair city more cycle-friendly.
The kick-off date has yet to be announced, but over the next two years, expect 1750 bikes and 175 stations to be rolled out across Dubai. The number will be ramped up to 3500 bikes and 350 stations in five years.

Dubai will soon become a lot more bike-friendly
Shout out to ride-hailing app Careem. If you’re already a user, you’ll know it’s super convenient and it’s amazing to see the app transfer its service to a form of transport that’s sustainable, as the city continues to grow.
