Careem BIKE is the most sustainable way to get where you’re going while getting exercise and having fun!
With any active membership, you can take as many rides as you like as long as each trip is less than 45 minutes. If you’re about to run out of time, simply return your bike to a docking station for a moment to avoid an extension fare.
Bike sharing is designed to address your micro-mobility needs and solve for the first and last mile journeys to and from metro stations and between communities.
Pedal-assisted bikes are available at stations around the city and can be rented through the Careem BIKE app. You can select a station, identify a free bike, rent it, and pick the next station for docking, all through the Careem BIKE app. The bikes can be taken from any station and returned to any station in the Careem BIKE share system.
All Careem bikes are pedal-assisted through electric motors. They are super easy to use. Instead of twisting or pressing a throttle to activate the motor, you can just start pedalling and the motor will power up automatically. The bikes also have 3 gears of pedalling speed and were designed with comfort in mind so you don’t need to be a professional cyclist or an athlete to use them.
Zones of operation include: Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Lake Towers, Al Barsha, The Greens, Internet City, Media City, Palm Jumeirah, Deira, Downtown Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Road, Dubai Canal, Karama, Mankhool, Al Qudra.
Careem BIKE will operate 800 bikes, located at 80 docking stations at launch that will scale up to 3,500 bikes, located at 350 docking stations in key areas around the city in the next 5 years.
Careem bikes were designed to fit riders of all heights and sizes. At the bottom of the seat post is a black lever that allows you to adjust the seat of your height. The seat post also has numbers, so you can remember your height setting. Don't forget: you must be 15 years or older to ride with Careem BIKE.
No, dock your bike before you get on the bus or metro. Pick up another bike at a station after you get off the bus or metro if you are still within the bike share service area.
The sturdy-framed bikes are durable and comfortable. Each bicycle comes with a loud bell, several reflectors and self-powered LED lights, so the bike is easily seen by cars and other cyclists. All riders should also wear a helmet to reduce the risk of head injury in case of an accident. Ensure that you adhere to local laws at all times when cycling.
Your safety is our highest priority. We strongly recommend riders always wear a helmet for their own safety. Wearing a helmet significantly reduces the risk of head injury in case of an accident.
Adjust the seat for your height, press the brakes to check the resistance, and check that the tires are inflated.
A station is the strip of bikes that are available around the city. These stations are solar-powered and hold a varying number of bikes. The dock is what holds the available bikes. Bikes are locked into a docking port and can only be unlocked by scanning the QR code or entering a 5-digit code on the keypad on the dock.
A kiosk or map frame is located at most stations. This is where you will find the Careem BIKE station map and information on how to use the bike.
Always try and ride on a dedicated bike lane when available. Watch out for your environment when riding on streets or pavements.

There are four membership options to choose from:
The ride starts as soon as you unlock the bike from the dock, from then you can use the bike for 45 minutes. If you choose to extend the trip beyond 45 minutes, an extension fare of 10 AED for every additional 30 minutes will apply. The ride ends when the bike is docked back.
With any active membership, you can take as many rides as you like as long as each trip is less than 45 minutes.

Bike share was created for quick trips and getting from Point A to Point B. Rides are limited to 45 minutes to ensure bike availability for all riders to “share.”
If you keep the bike longer than 45 minutes at a time, it’s an extra AED 10 for each additional 30 minutes. Remember to dock your bike before 45 minutes to avoid the extra charges.
While you have the bike you are legally obligated to keep it safe under your possession. Any damage or loss of the bike will lead to charges of upto AED 5000 depending on the situation.
