Dubai Taxi Corporation has revealed plans to offer free WiFi on board all of its cars after introducing the service on its limousine fleet.
The Roads and Transport Authority firm said the new service, which has been introduced on its 113-strong limousine fleet, is intended to increase customer satisfaction.
“All limos have been fitted with the service which will gradually be broadened to cover all DTC taxicabs,” read a Dubai Media Office release.
“Limousines of the DTC offer a great and unique service tailor-made to the needs of our clients in the tourist sector such as hotels, airline companies and other related public or private entities. The service is available from Dubai to all other Emirates 24/7,” Dubai Taxi Corp CEO Dr Yousef Mohammed Al Ali said.
The service, which is available during transit, was launched through a deal with a specialist provider.
It comes as the emirate looks to enhance its tourist credentials ahead of the World Expo 2020 event.
“Such a drive is consistent with the ambitious plans of our leaders, contributes to the realisation of RTA’s third strategic goal (People Happiness), and echoes DTC’s vision of Pioneers in Passengers Transport Services,” added Al Ali.
Earlier this year the firm launched a limo rival to local firms Uber and Careem available through a specialist app.
The company reported a Dhs10m rise in profit last year and carried 1 million more passengers across its fleet of limousines and taxis.
