In 1999, many people questioned our idea to establish Dubai Internet City in the desert.

The merger is definitely exciting news, even though Careem plans to run independently, it will help Pakistan’s economic growth. A lot of people were upset that this merger has put an end to the competition between Uber and Careem, but let’s not judge too soon and wait for what this merger has to bring to the table. We wish them luck, love and tons of support, because they make our daily travel easier and comfortable.
