Is simcity still multiplayer?

back in 2013 when the game was released i remember someone telling me it had a multiplayer mode i m curious to know before i purchase if that option still works or if EA got rid of it. i m basically only gonna buy it if I can play with friends in multiplayer.

Yes it does, no ideal how well it works or if the servers for it are still running.
