The Integrated Transport Center (ITC) at the Department of Transport in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on Monday announced to resume Uber services in the emirate after two years of suspension.

“The transport authority announced the decision after signing an agreement with Uber.

“The Uber services in Abu Dhabi will be the same as in Dubai, as the citizens can register as full-time or part-time drivers via the app using their private vehicles,’’ the Gulf News reported.

According to the report, the fares of the ride will vary depending on the day of week and the time of day, and may change during public holidays.

According to Mohammad Darwish al Qamzi, General Manager of ITC, the agreement with Uber shows the ITC’s commitment to developing smart transportation solutions in the emirate.

Anthony Khoury, Regional Manager of Uber Middle East said: “We are proud to announce the relaunch of Uber and bring our technology to all residents and visitors in the emirate.

“Abu Dhabi is a significant market for Uber and we’re delighted to serve as catalysts for economic growth, and for Emiratis to be able to drive on the Uber app using their private vehicles,’’ he added.

Abu Dhabi suspended the services of both Uber and its major rival in the Middle East, Careem, in August 2016, after some drivers were arrested over regulation violations.
