In a move aimed at further strengthening its commitment to user experience and convenience, Careem, the region’s leading ride-hailing service, announces that it is now integrated into Google Maps.

The service is currently available on Android and iOS to users in the UAE and will be rolled out in Qatar and across the other markets in the region, in the coming weeks.

The integration of Careem’s services with Google Maps means a faster ride-hailing experience for users of both apps. For users searching for directions in Google Maps, a simple tap on the ride-hailing icon on the far right will reveal the closest available Careem cars, along with the expected pick-up time and fare estimate for a ride to their selected destination.

At this point, users will have the option to open the Careem app and confirm their booking, with their pick-up and drop-off details transferring to the Careem app automatically.
