TransAD to launch new silver taxi service in Western Region

Abu Dhabi's Centre for Regulation of Transport by Hire Cars (TransAD) has announced it is set to launch the taxi service (silver) in the Western Region, starting from September 1, Wam has reported. Taxis will be operated by the same companies in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, which have conducted professional training for their drivers to provide the service in the Western Region. "The new service addresses the needs of people in the Western Region as well as visitors and tourists," said director of franchise and licensing at TransAD, Mohamed Al Hosani. "We will evaluate results of the service during the first phase, following which we will decide the number of taxis needed to ensure sufficient services."
