Salam Riyadh, your Ubers have arrived!

Riyadh, one of the most deeply rooted historical cities in Arabia, has recently undergone tremendous growth, evolving into an international city that is embracing innovation. That growth continued today when Uber arrived in Riyadh to connect residents, visitors and business travelers with safe, stylish, reliable rides.

It all started when noted Saudi visual artist, cartoonist, film director and CEO of Lumink Studios, Malek Nejer, rushed to request his first Uber ride from Al Nakheel Tower. He opened the Uber app on his iPhone and was thrilled to learn a private driver was only a few minutes away. Nejer was amazed at how Uber is as fast paced as his animated frames!

Experiencing Uber is fast and simple:

  1. Download the app on your smartphone via and sign up.

  2. Select your pickup location in the Uber app and your private chauffeur will arrive within minutes.

  3. Uber is cashless and convenient. Once you arrive at your destination, your fare is automatically charged to your credit card on file and we’ll also e-mail you a receipt.

  4. Enter promo code “UberRiyadh” in your app and get a free first ride up to SAR100

Uber is still in its testing phase, so only limited vehicles are available and promotional pricing is in place (15% off standard prices). But don’t worry, we’re adding additional partners every day to ensure you get a comfortable, reliable, and safe ride. For any comments or questions, drop us an email to and follow @Uber_Riyadh for the latest news, tips and updates.

Uber on, Team UberRiyadh
