Careem BIKE offers pedal assist bicycles that give rides a little boost as they go. The service includes 800 bicycles that can be rented from 80 stations across Dubai. This new micro mobility service relies on a smart system to track bicycles and predict high occupancy areas. Bikes are then positioned as needed to solar-powered stations  so customers will always find a bike when they want one. Renting a bike is easy and can through the Careem BIKE app. All customers have to do is download the Careem BIKE app, register, and then unlock their bike by scanning the QR code on the bike frame or by entering the five-digit code from the app on the docking station. Customers can choose to rent on a one time basis, or for enthusiasts and frequent users subscribe to monthly and annual packages that make the cost of riding even lower.
