Taxi hailing app Careem banned

Amman, Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (TRC) on Sunday contacted the concerned telecommunications companies to block the ride-sharing Careem application-Jordan, which provides public transport services within the Greater Amman Municipality area.

In a press statement put out on Monday, the TRC said the ban of Careem’s app is in place until the ride-hailing company obtains a license from the competent authorities.

The ban covers the smart app on mobile networks 2g / 3g / 4g in implementation of the West Amman Court’s ruling, which the Commission received a copy on 19/4/2018, explained the statement.
