RTA: Parents can now pre-book taxis for school pick-ups, drop-offs

by Dubaiforum

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced on Tuesday that online pre-booking of taxis for school pick-ups and drop-offs can now be done by parents in the emirate. Taxis can be booked by residents for the school run daily, weekly or monthly, particularly in places not covered by school buses.

You can book the taxis through RTA’s Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) app, which now has an added ‘In-Safe Hands’ service. The app is available for Apple and Android users.

RTA said that, “the new feature enhances the confidence, happiness, and security of the taxi service and diversifies the channels of delivering services to customers besides ensuring the fast processing and tracking of customer requests.”

“The ‘In-Safe Hands’ service enables parents of students to pre-book taxis daily, weekly or monthly to lift their children to and from their schools. The service addresses the needs at places not covered by school buses,” RTA added.

Abdullah Ibrahim Al Meer, director of DTC Digitisation and Commercial Development, said, “DTC is keen to serve the needs of clients by offering them exceptional services, and at the same time enhance the integration of RTA’s multi-modal transport.”

“The launch of the service on the digital app follows a remarkable growth in demand for the service, which increased by as much as 122 per cent between 2021 and 2022,” he added.
