Alexandrians - quick, grab your phones! Uber is about to arrive in your city.
We're super excited to announce that Uber is officially going multi-city in Egypt as they drop their launch date in Alexandria very soon, their first expansion outside of Cairo.
For those who aren’t familiar with Uber, it’s a private taxi app, or as they describe themselves "Everyone’s Private Driver," where all you have to do is hit a button and in few minutes a car arrives to pick you up. Uber has been taking Cairo by storm as Cairo is Uber’s fastest growing market in Europe and the MENA region. So of course the company didn’t hold back and quickly thought about launching in Alexandria, Egypt’s second largest city. The launch will be soon; very soon, we're telling you. Like...next week soon.
Anthony El-Khoury, Uber Cairo General Manger told us, "After one year since our launch in Cairo we are very excited to expand our service to Alexandria, a timeless city at the forefront of innovation. We are always looking at ways we can provide riders with more choices and drivers with more economic opportunities. Our aim is to make cities more accessible, at convenient and affordable rates, without compromising on value, while ensuring safety and transparency."
For us Cairenes, we've been enjoying the luxury of Uber's sevice; now it's your time, Alexandrians.
