Launched in 2019, Careem Bikes in Dubai is the first of its kind bike-sharing initiative in Dubai that was launched in partnership with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

When looking for a means of public transport in Dubai, the emirate offers varying options. You can choose either a bus or a taxi; Dubai has fantastic metro and tram services. With Careem Bikes launching, the locals and the travellers get another option to choose from.
