Uber's Tino Waked and Richard Sikkel of Massar Solutions discuss the future of transportation

This week, Richard Sikkel, chief executive of Massar Solutions, and Tino Waked, regional general manager of Middle East & Africa at Uber, join The National's Assistant Editor in Chief Mustafa Alrawi to talk about all things transportation in an era rapidly changing thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.
