Careem is a transportation company that has been operating for a couple of years in Egypt. Careem has succeeded to make our lives easier by saving us lots of hustle; but made us go crazy sometimes while dealing with captains. The application recently released the scooter feature which allows you to order a scooter instead of a car; and recently the creators behind the application has released a new feature which is a white taxi! You might wonder, but don’t we use Careem to escape from white taxis and tax drivers? well, the answer is yes.. but (you know there is always a but) the white taxi feature from Careem should be different, right?
We’ve tried the new feature ourselves and here is what we think
Unlike other taxis, the first thing I’ve noticed was the AC, it rarely happens around the capital to get into a cab and find the AC working, that was a huge plus. Taxi drivers now can use the GPS which means the driver doesn’t have to go around claiming or pretending that he got lost or doesn’t know the way. Another plus about the new white taxi feature is you don’t have to deal with taxi drivers rejections anymore!
What’s more, the taxi condition itself is actually pretty good, the only negative thing about the white taxi is that it isn’t always available or might take a long time till the driver arrives, but we bet this problem will be fixed pretty soon with more taxis joining.
Not to mention that the white taxi is cheaper than the usual Careem value car, which can save some money specially in long trips!
