The step, which is taken in collaboration with one of the leading international firms in this regard, is intended to improve this aspect and align it with the ongoing development seen by the UAE in general and Dubai in particular.

Dr. Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of Public Transport Agency at the RTA, said: “The RTA is seeking to bring happiness to all customers, especially users of taxis; a vital sector with implications on the tourist profile of the emirate.

“Dubai is increasingly shaping into a global tourist attraction and a premier hub for a variety of business events, activities, conferences and exhibitions attracting business leaders and participants from all corners of the world.

“We have conducted elaborate studies in collaboration with Mary Gober International Ltd on procedures of attracting and employing taxi drivers in Dubai, and deploying them in all franchise companies operating in the emirate (including RTA’s Dubai Taxi Corporation). More info
