In partnership with the RTA.
Initially announced a few months back, Careem now lets you book RTA operated Dubai Taxis right from their app. Customers using Careem will see a new ‘Taxi’ car type option and can select it if they prefer to use an RTA Taxi.
Careem will then then match the closest available taxi and send it over to your location. Customers will then see a confirmation of the booking and see details about the taxi on the screen to easily identify the vehicle and the driver.
RTA will then take over the booking and payment will be settled with the taxi driver in cash or credit card machine if taxi supports it.
Commenting on the announcement, Faraz Syed, Managing Director of Careem, UAE said: “Today marks history for us. We committed to make getting around town easier for everyone and now with the addition of Dubai Taxis to our service, we are able to do so.” He also emphasized that it is also helping drivers to better support their families.
