Taxis and ride-hailing service
Taxis are readily available in Rabat and are an inexpensive way to get around the city. Careem, a ride-hailing company subsidiary of Uber, also serves Rabat. The Careem app is available at https://help.careem.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001609567-Downloading-Careem-app.
Two tram lines connect Rabat Medina, the ancient part of the city, with the newer part. This is an excellent mode of transportation within Rabat because of its frequent service, low fare (around 60 Euro cents a ride), latest infrastructure (such as free onboard Wi-Fi), and connection to key-city attractions.
