The Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) has teamed up with its strategic partner Emirates Islamic Bank to dispatch the second batch of cab drivers to perform Umrah, officials announced yesterday. The 50 drivers were chosen based on years of experience, performance, revenues, accidents, complaints, and good conduct.
At the launch of the corporation's 24-hour booking system, called Any Time Booking, Abdul Aziz Abdullah Al Shuhail, the company's director of technical support department, said as part of the new system, customers will be able to request one of the STC's family taxis, which are driven by women, or an ordinary cab. The corporation has increased the number of cabs with female drivers from eight to 23 in order to cater for families and women who do not feel comfortable travelling in taxis driven by men.
