Introducing Uber Bus—your daily commute

February 24, 2020 / Egypt

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

We’re excited to introduce 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 we invite you to hop on board.

Pricing in Cairo:

Uber Bus prices are from 10EGP until 35EGP and are based on the time and distance of your trip.


  • A trip from Tahrir square to Shooting Club is 10 EG
  • A trip from Sa’aa square to Cairo Festival City is 20 EGP
  • A trip from Hegaz Square to Hossary Square is 35 EGP
