Free Wi-Fi in Dubai taxis

Time Out has news of free Wi-Fi in Dubai taxis, starting in December. Already common in the limousine fleet and buses, it is good news for jobs in Dubai

Dubai Taxis will have Wi-Fi from December, Dubai Media Office have confirmed.

In a tweet on Wednesday afternoon, they revealed LCD screens and the new internet service would be rolled out in public transport before the end of the year.

In October, the Roads And Transport Authority introduced similar options in each of the cars in the limousine fleet, while suggesting all taxis would follow. And sure enough they will.

The news comes just a day after it was announced that 100 intercity buses connecting all the Emirates will have Wi-Fi on board for all passengers to use.

In fact, every week that passes it seems that transport in Dubai and the UAE becomes more modern and comfortable.

Buses in Dubai are now safer than ever thanks to facial recognition technology which checks if drivers are falling asleep, distracted or on their mobiles.

You can now also book RTA taxis on the Careem app, order a female-driven limo on the e-hailing app and last but definitely not least the Hyperloop, a futuristic means of transport that will take passengers from Dubai to Abu Dhabi in roughly 10 minutes.

And all this has been happening in the space of a few months! Then again, this is Dubai.
