Uber is taking over another city in its quest for world domination; Gouna is next to be Uberified. Hitching a ride will never be hard again in the Red Sea resort town with uberTukTuks being available at the push of a button as of April 1st and until the end of May. Hold on a second; uberTukTuks? What, really? Uber is using tuktuks in Gouna? Seriously?
Well, it turns out the ginormous, bazillion dollar company that's revolutionising the way people get around all over the the world has taken to using what are essentially motorised tricycles to transport people. Actually, now that we’re talking about it, it does sound kind of cool. Mind you, it might be kind of tough to determine which uberTukTuk is yours based on its make and model. It's not quite the same experience as hopping in the Lancer or Geely waiting for you with its hazard lights on.
Sure, it's a little unconventional, but what else do you expect from Uber - and from Gouna, of all places? Be on the lookout for little uberTukTuk icons on your Uber app the next time you head to Gouna.
