RTA offers smart taxi apps

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has embraced the smartphone revolution and developed some novel ways of getting around the city. Its first app offers a new way of ordering a taxi, and seeks to revolutionise RTA’s taxi workflow system. It all starts with a simple shake of your smartphone.
“Normally when you want a taxi you wave your hand. Now, with this new app, all you have to do is shake your phone,” says Adeli Shakri, Director, Transportation Systems Department, RTA.
