    Careem were suspended in 2016 for regulation
  • Uber is starting again in Abu Dhabi with Uber Select, a
    high-end offering of its service, and says it will introduce
    more options over the coming months.

Uber has resumed services in Abu Dhabi after a more than two-year
suspension, the
US ride-hailing company said in a statement on Monday.

Uber announced that its Select service is available immediately

the coming months.” 
Uber Select is a high-end

types of vehicles,” Uber said.
