Uber to Expand Services to 50% of Egyptian Cities by End of 2018, CEO Confirms in Meeting with Sisi

Maybe our friends in Kafr El-Sheikh can finally hail their own ride if all goes well.

Uber in Egypt

As part of his visit to New York, on account of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi met with Uber CEO, Dara Khosrowshahi, pertaining to the future of Uber in Egypt, especially with Egypt’s new ride-sharing act that has officially gone into effect.

Among the numerous topics in discussion during the meeting was the positive impact that the ride-sharing service has had on both Egypt’s economy as well as quality of life. With Uber operating in only a handful of Egypt’s governorates, it has already provided well over 200,000 job opportunities thus far, and with the Khosrowshahi’s assurance, the company aims to spread to at least 50% of Egypt’s governments before year’s end.

Although tides have been somewhat turbulent as of late, what with the seemingly rigid nature of Egypt’s ride-sharing act, as well the economy in constant fluctuation, the company has been making efforts to keep its quality of service up to snuff, as well as providing secure, reliable transportation at the swipe of a screen.
