Ride-hailing app Uber has launched a new service in Qatar that uses older, smaller cars and cuts current Uber prices in the country by up to 25 percent, the company has announced.
The UberGo option came into force last week and is in addition to the existing UberX service.
It aims to cater to passengers who do not have a car but need to make short journeys around cities, such as a trip to the supermarket or bank. Payment can be made in cash, or by credit card.
In a statement on its website, Uber said a five-to-10-minute UberGo ride in Doha was “cheaper than a cup of coffee”. More info
