Uber Bus—your daily commute

July 16 / Egypt

Uber Bus is a new way to enjoy a comfortable, safe, and convenient commute in Egypt.
There’s no need to wait to hail down and squeeze onto a crowded bus.

We’re excited to bring the high quality and safety standards of Uber to even more riders. You can now use Uber Bus for your daily commute within Cairo!

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, you will see all the possible timings that you can book and will get to schedule your whole week ahead. Also, because you are sharing your rides 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 we invite you to hop on board.

Pricing:

Any trip in Cairo is from 15EGP until 50EGP and is based on the distance of your trip.

Examples:

  • A trip from Tahrir Square to Shooting Club is 15 EG
  • A trip from Ahmed Oraby Street to Cairo Festival City is 35 EGP
  • A trip from Hegaz Square to Hossary Square is 40 EGP

Uber Bus App:

The Uber Bus app lets you reserve your seat on an air-conditioned bus that frequently runs along popular routes so there is always a ride nearby. The Uber Bus app works on all android devices and in all network conditions. There is always the option to book from the normal Uber app as well.
