Dubai Taxi opens Union Rest House



The Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) at the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), has recently opened the ‘Union Rest House’ at its Head Office in Muhaisna, in the context of the 41st UAE National Day celebrations, in a bid to raise the satisfaction of cabdrivers; which in turn would step up the DTC’s operational efficiency and contribute to customers satisfaction rating.

“The Rest House receives every day hordes of cabdrivers and staffs and the garden has been fitted with comfortable seats for drivers at the backdrop of a fountain & colourful lights, adding glamorous night lighting.
