Cars Taxi, one of Qatar’s leading taxi services, today announced the launch of its 500 new taxis to add to the initial fleet of 500 operating vehicles. The new development was formally launched at a ceremony held at Sharq Village and Spa in Doha, under the patronage of His Excellency Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti, Minister of Transport of the State of Qatar and Chairman of Mowasalat.

One of the region's largest taxi franchise operators, Cars Taxi operates in Qatar in partnership with Qatar-based Profit Group.

“This large addition to the existing fleet reflects Cars Taxi’s commitment to find balance between the increasing needs of taxi riders and availability of service providers in Qatar. Building on the successful commissioning of the first batch of 500 taxis, this also reinforces Cars Taxi’s commitment to providing the highest standards of quality of services. Since launching operations in Qatar two years ago, Cars Taxi has established itself as the preferred choice of commuters throughout the country, and today we take a major step forward in our efforts to expand our network,” said Abdulla Sultan Al Sabbagh, Group CEO, Cars Taxi Group.

Commenting on Cars Taxi’s latest development, Mr. P Balasubramaniam, Group Director of Profit Group, said, “Cars Taxi’s fleet of lemon yellow-roofed taxis has become a distinctive presence on the roads of Qatar and has thereafter earned a reputation for reliability and efficiency and for offering unparalleled comfort and convenience. Cars Taxi Qatar is committed to offering the highest levels of service to customers, and this large addition to the fleet will help reinforce our market position in the country while providing tourists and locals in Qatar with the most convenient transportation means.”

Mr. Al Sabbagh added, “each of Cars Taxi’s vehicles is equipped with advanced Mobile Data Terminals (MDTs), inclusive of meters, navigation systems, taxi tracking and dispatch systems, as well as a speed monitoring system allowing a maximum speed limit of 100 km per hour within city limits”.

“As part of our commitment to environmental conservation and sustainable development – which is one of the four pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030 – Cars Taxi is looking to introduce hybrid taxis in Qatar – bringing to the country an initiative that has already been successfully implemented in the UAE. Plans are also afoot to introduce dedicated taxis for families and women as well as special needs vehicles to cater to people with disabilities,” Mr. P. Balasubramaniam concluded.

Mr. Al Sabbagh advised that, “in keeping with its commitment to service quality and driver and passenger safety, Cars Taxi has implemented a rigorous driver training program that scrutinizes and assesses drivers from recruitment to arrival in Qatar. Cars Taxi's professional trainers provide intensive training course to drivers for 21 days covering locations, traffic rules and regulations, defensive driving, lane discipline and customer service before certifying the drivers for the road”.
