A few years ago, moving around a vast city like Cairo was problematic for those who don’t drive, or can’t afford buying a car, or a motorbike.
They were between the devil and the deep blue sea; choosing between the-ever-so-crowded public means of transportation, or pushing their luck, trying to find a taxi abiding by the legal fare, to begin with. The hassle was endless, and even when car-rental applications made their appearance on stage, it was only a matter of time before a daily user realised that the service is too costly to become a habit.
Add to that the skyrocketing prices of gas; even if you have a car, filling up your car tank has become a luxury, especially as every month comes to an end, let alone tolerating other drivers’ shenanigans, or finding a parking space.
Yes, we can go on forever about what we went through on daily basis to move about. But things are much easier now. The tedious commute is now transformed into a daily road trip with Swvl. No matter where you are, where you are going, or what time it is; there’s always a ride close at hand. All you need is to download the app, choose your location and destination, book your spot, et voila!
Once you hop in, just sit back, relax, and let the driver take the wheel. You can merely contemplate the beauty of Cairo as you listen to your favourite tunes, read a book, catch up with a friend over the phone, or even check your email –there’s a plenty of perks to enjoy during the comfortable, air-conditioned Swvl ride.
