Due to increasing demand, particularly from families, Karwa has added 50 more seven-seat taxis to its airport fleet, said the Executive Director of the company, Ahmed Busharbaq Al Mansouri (pictured). As for general taxis, 300 more are being included to the existing fleet. In addition to this, more Skoda cars are being included in the fleet of taxis Public transport buses of Mowasalat, Al Mansouri told Al Sharq in an interview, have longer life. Their average life is 8.6 years, so most of Mowasalat buses are in a good condition. “Nevertheless, we are getting 100 more buses to be added to our large fleet,” said Al Mansouri. “We have 10 double-deckers with open roof. They basically cater to tourists,” he pointed out. There are 50 Karwa taxi stands all over the city and more will be opened as soon as road works are completed. Vehicle maintenance facilities are being expanded and new garages are being set up in areas like Al Muntazah, Abu Hamour, Al Wakra, Al Khor and Ain Khalid. Karwa City is to be inaugurated soon, the Executive Director said. “Our driving school has ISO certifications and comes in handy to regularly train our drivers, especially,” he said. “We have inked a pact with Qatar University to have a smart traffic system in place, he said. About the demand for taxis, he said it is always there round the year but gets reduced during the summer holidays since many families travel overseas.
