(MENAFN -Khaleej Times) The Limousine fleet features a variety of deluxe models of the latest luxury brands boasting attractive features and eye-catching designs

Some 90 deluxe vehicles are now integrated with the booking and dispatch service centre to beef up the Roads and Transport Authority’s (RTA) drive to deliver integrated transit services addressing the needs of the local community in Dubai.


Dr Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of RTA Public Transport Agency, said that the rising demand for specialised transit services, such as Limousines, has boosted the integration drive aimed at sustaining the improvement of service offering, and ensuring the diversity of transit options to meet the preferences of  Dubai residents.


He said that more than 4,000 requests for Limousine services were reported by RTA’s booking and dispatch service last year, and this could be attributed to the several features of the Limousines that keep them apart from ordinary taxis, as they offer the luxury and privacy expected by VIPs.


“The Limousine fleet features a variety of deluxe models of the latest luxury brands boasting attractive features and eye-catching designs. They are fitted with stylish Android-operated Galaxy metres, and driven by expert cabbies dressed in elegant black suit,” he added.


Al Ali said that the 90 deluxe vehicles during the initial phase have been linked with the booking and dispatch service centre under a specific agreement signed between the Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) and some private firms running Limousine service such as Presidential, On Call, and Royal Luxury Limousines.


“Limousines can be availed through the booking and dispatch centre via an express service with the airport booking; which is highly accessible, specifically during peak hours.


The service is available in busy areas such as The Dubai Mall, thus obviating the need to wait for ordinary taxis. The DTC gives exceptional attention to providing customers with on-time transit services to their destinations throughout the day with highly convenient and safe vehicles,” said Al Ali.
