Uber launches minibus service in Cairo

Ride-hailing company Uber Technologies Inc. announced on Tuesday it is launching a minibus service called Uber Bus. The service will first be available in Egypt's capital Cairo and users will be able to access it through the Uber app.

"We’re excited to launch our next innovation to bring the high quality and safety standards of Uber to even more Cairo riders. Meet Uber Bus—your daily commute. Uber Bus uses technology to reserve your seat on a clean, air-conditioned, and high-quality bus," the company stated in a blog post. "When you request your ride through the app, we will find other passengers traveling in the same direction so that you can get to your destination with fewer stops," the company added.

According to earlier media reports, the Uber Bus service may soon be introduced in other countries, including Mexico and Kenya.
