Careem Eastern Province General Manager Iyad Aldalooj told the news source that his company’s goal is to recruit and register more than 10,000 Captainahs in preparation to launch a service specifically for women and families.

Women were given the right to drive in September 2017 after a royal decree by King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud reversed the long-standing ban.

Careem offers a fixed salary, bonuses, and discounts with corporate partners.
