New ride-hailing startup Dubci to launch in Egypt next month
A new Egyptian ride-hailing company is set to launch in Egypt in August next month. In a market already crowded by Careem, Uber, Halan, and the fast growing Swvl, there is a strong debate whether another player could heat up competition or fall out of the race like the well-funded Ousta and European player Taxify, now known as Bolt who launched in Egypt a while ago.
The icons posted on Dubci’s website, social media and billboards suggest that it will be launching its ride-hailing services for cars, bikes, boats, buses, mini-buses, as well as helicopter. Media reports suggest that the startup will equip cars with free internet as well as install security cameras for safety.
This reminds us of Urent, a startup that will allow the renting of six categories of vehicles, launching with cars and yachts at the end of July, and is being financially backed by The Private Office of Sheikh Saeed bin Ahmed Al Maktoum.
