Dubai Taxi Corporation announced its initiative “Al Khair Ride,” meaning the ride of goodwill.
To book a taxi, a person with disabilities need only call 042080808. The taxis that will then be sent will be equipped with added technologies to lift wheelchair users, and to provide safety and privacy for passengers. They will be driven by drivers trained to assist people with disabilities and available around the clock at Dubai airports.
Dr. Al-Ali said the service is in support of the Dubai government’s aim to turn the emirate into one of the world’s most disabled-friendly cities by 2020.
