We’re excited to launch our next innovation to bring the high quality and safety standards of Uber to even more Cairo riders. Meet Uber Bus—your daily commute. Uber Bus uses technology to reserve your seat on a clean, air-conditioned, and high-quality bus.

When you request your ride through the app, we will find other passengers traveling in the same direction so that you can get to your destination with fewer stops. And, because you are sharing your ride with other Uber passengers, the price is affordable enough for everyday use, while still maintaining Uber standards. 

We are thrilled that Cairo is the first city in the world to launch Uber Bus, and and we invite you to be one of the first people to hop on board.

UberBus App

UberBus is a new way to enjoy a comfortable, safe, and convenient commute in Cairo,

For a little time only ALL Uber Bus rides will be for 5 EGP only!
