Egyptian start- up SWVL, is disrupting the way commuters travel in the MENA region. SWVL connects commuters with shared rides via a network of high-quality buses. SWVL runs its own fixed routes spread across multiple cities and customers gather at specific pick-up spots along the route, to be driven to a common drop-off location. This lowers the overall cost of all these commutes and helps in saving time and money for all parties - improving the overall system’s effectiveness and making the process convenient and affordable to all stakeholders. By reinventing the daily commute, SWVL appeals to a new generation of tech-savvy commuters and simultaneously delivers a social benefit. SWVL's service addresses and solves a range of both demand and supply problems.
SWVL's founders recently raised their series B funding, and have successfully raised one of the biggest rounds of funding in the MENA region - an undisclosed sum around the 'tens of millions' mark; enabling the company to solidify its position as a global leader in building tech-enabled public transportation, and finance the launch of its R&D facility in Berlin, Germany.
SWVL is a revolutionary idea that was born from passion, loyalty and the persistence to face all challenges brought to the table. SWVL is not just a means to facilitate commuting, but a hunger to strive for solutions, encourage the contribution of youth in innovation, and inspire change.
