This Ramadan, Uber has announced it will offer discounted rides to people looking to receive their first COVID-19 vaccination dose in Riyadh, Jeddah, Makkah and the Eastern Province in Saudi Arabia. The initiative is part of Uber’s global campaign to help communities “move what matters,” supporting public authorities in the Kingdom as they work to fight the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Riders will be able to avail 25 percent off two Uber rides, up to SR20 ($5.3) each to and from public vaccination centers across the Kingdom. The applicable centers are listed in the Sehhaty app, developed by the Ministry of Health to advance healthcare in the Kingdom. The offer came into effect from April 12 and will run until May.

Mohammad Gazzaz, general manager, Saudi Arabia at Uber, said: “We want to support the government’s efforts to vaccinate more of the population and ultimately contain the spread of the virus. Since the onset of the pandemic, we’ve worked to enhance health and safety for both riders and drivers, and the vaccination drive is another step in the process to help people prioritize their health and safety and facilitate mobility around the city.”
