Riyadh, MINA – Uber has announced the launch of Uber Medics in Saudi Arabia. The initiative will see the company provide health care workers with discounted trips as part of its continued support to communities in helping flatten the curve of COVID-19 infections.
Health care workers across Riyadh, Jeddah and the Eastern Province will be able to benefit from 25 percent off their Uber trips to and from their workplaces, Arab News reported.
