Mowasalat Co (Karwa) and Uber inked a strategic partnership on Sunday that will bring Karwa Taxis to the Uber platform. The move, which will help elevate Qatar’s mobility landscape, will also support the 2030 Qatar National Vision.  

Through the partnership, Karwa’s Public Transport Taxi fleet will become available on the Uber app to boost travel options for residents and tourists, thereby making Qatar’s transport network more efficient.

Karwa and Uber’s partnership exemplifies the power of public-private collaboration. More cars on the platform will mean ride-sharing works even better — with faster pickups, more affordable and reliable rides. 

Nasser Mamdouh Al Shammari, Light Transport Services Director at Karwa, was thrilled with the new collaboration.

“Partnering with Uber marks a significant milestone in our mission to provide advanced and sustainable public transport solutions in Qatar. We look forward to this collaboration to promote a green mobility landscape with our hybrid-electric Taxi fleet. This initiative will improve the accessibility and convenience of our services,” he was quoted as saying by The Peninsula.

“We’re thrilled to join forces to bring the Karwa Taxi service to thousands of riders in Qatar. Uber has a long history of partnering with cities to boost earning opportunities for drivers and improve access to transport for riders. We strongly believe partnerships like this will pave the way for innovation in the mobility sector, and we’re committed to making this a partnership of trust and cooperation long into the future,” said Pia El Hachem, Uber’s General Manager for Qatar, UAE and Jordan. 

As part of the partnership, Karwa will also onboard premium vehicles onto the app under Uber Black, together with electric vehicles in line with Uber’s commitment to be an emission-free mobility platform globally by 2040. 

Karwa Taxi trips started becoming accessible on Uber on Sunday, May 26. Joining the existing line-up of products in Qatar, the new taxi service will give riders the ability to request a taxi at the touch of a button.
