Swvl Holdings Corp (“Swvl” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: SWVL), a global provider of transformative tech-enabled mass transit solutions, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire Mexico-based Urbvan Mobility Ltd (“Urbvan”), a shared mobility platform that provides tech-enabled transportation services to Latin America’s second largest country by population. Urbvan provides tech-enabled transportation services that aim to improve both quality of life and safety standards of bus travel across vast geographical distances. Integrating mobility patterns with a shared vehicle aggregator platform, Swvl’s acquisition of Urbvan provides an excellent opportunity to accelerate Swvl’s mission to provide safer, faster, smarter, and more affordable mass transport for everyone no matter where they live.

The company operates in 18 cities across Mexico with solutions for urban routes, intercity routes, for private organizations and for private on-demand needs. Similar to Swvl, Urbvan is committed to providing affordable, efficient transportation options free of harassment and other unsafe conditions.
