Cost-free Wi-Fi and other digital services are now available in Dubai taxis, after the RTA started the implementation of the “Tech Taxi” initiative.
The digital services support Dubai’s steps toward becoming a smart city. Dubai also recently saw the launch of e-hailing service Hala Taxi, in conjunction with Careem.
All taxis will enable riders to connect to Tech Taxi using their smartphones. Once connected, the rider can visit www.taxiconnect.ae to access an array of services. Options enable communication with the driver, using instant interpretation of the passenger’s language to the driver’s selected language, that is displayed on the meter screen.
