Dubai Smart Taxi App


The Public Transport Agency, a unit of Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), has launched a Smart Taxi app which allows users to book a cab with a “flip of their phone”.

The app was launched as part of RTA’s initiative to transform Dubai into the smartest city in the world.

It is fully integrated with the Booking and Dispatch Centre at the Public Transport Agency, which is responsible for handling incoming taxi booking requests from the public, a statement said.

Adel Shakri, director of transportation systems, said the Smart Taxi service meant users could order a cab with a “flip of their phone”.
