(MENAFN) Jordan turned into the first ever Middle Eastern country to introduce taxi-hailing service 'Uber Taxi' after Uber recently purchased Careem.
This move is an indication of efforts Uber is making to strengthen the transportation sector and increase its availability to citizens and guests.
Uber is also showing its endorsement through the move to the public transport sector within Jordan as the ride-hailing company develops its network of cars and opens more chances for taxi drives.
"I am honored to announce the arrival of Uber Taxi in Jordan, and we are excited to be tapping into local modes of transport so that more riders and drivers can benefit from our technology," stated Vice President of Uber operations in Europe, Middle East & Africa, Pierre-Dimitri Gore-Coty.
Gore-Coty added "Jordan is a fast growing market, especially in the smart transport services sector, and through this launch, we aim to move towards our goal of becoming a multi-modality platform."
