Uber has been in Dubai since 2013 and relaunched in Abu Dhabi in 2018, with regulations that allow for Emiratis to drive.

"The UAE is committed to driving urban mobility and leading smart cities of the future," said Mahasneh. "And we believe we have an important role to play in facilitating this vision, advancing the mobility system, and ultimately improving people’s quality of life."
