Careem expands into East Mosul, Iraq

We’re now simplifying and improving lives in Mosul, Iraq with the launch of ride-hailing services in the East Bank.

Iraq has limited transportation access and many of its people do not have a reliable way to get around. In 2018, we successfully launched Careem in Baghdad and Najaf (with a pilot running in Erbil).

In the time since, we’ve learned a lot about the country’s obstacles and developed our own solutions. We’ve mapped 15,000 locations in Iraq and we’ve made booking a ride super accessible through WhatsApp.

Everyone knows that Iraq is going through rapid change right now. While infrastructure is being rebuilt in Mosul, we’re providing transportation options and employment opportunities that help the local economy.

Another step in our ongoing mission to identify and address mobility opportunities in #Iraq. Welcome to the family #Mosul! 💚 #StartAChange

Ride hailing is just the beginning. In the near future, we’re going to be rolling out a whole range of services as part of our vision to become the region’s everyday super app. Stay tuned for more updates!
