You Will Soon Be Able To Book Boat Cruises In Jeddah Using Careem


Ever wanted to go on a boat cruise in Jeddah? Well soon you will be able to book one by just logging onto the Careem app on your smartphone.

According to the Saudi Gazette, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) has issued a license to ride-hailing app Careem that will allow its users to book boat cruises at Jeddah’s corniche.

The rent of these boat cruises is expected to be almost half to what is currently being charged.

Many new jobs for Saudis are expected to come in force because of this initiative.

President of the PTA, Rumaih Al-Rumaih said that the PTA’s license for smart apps for vehicles has proved a great success, attracting many Saudis to take up this service full-time or on a part-time basis.
