Abu Dhabi taxi firm Q Link set for February closure

Q Link, one of seven Abu Dhabi's TransAD taxi franchises, has said it has made a "strategic decision" to halt operations and close by February after failing to meet the requirements of a taxi operator, The National has reported. The company had not been operating the 1,021 taxis required in the operating licence, Alawi Dares, the TransAD communication officer said. The company has been struggling to meet the quota since May, when it was reported that Q Link had reached only 313 vehicles, he said.
