Mowasalat is the sole operator of public transport and runs the Karwa brand of taxis and buses in Qatar. Bahzad pointed out that the booking of taxis would be changed into an electronic system. “A reception clerk would follow up the request through a monitor showing the distribution and locations of available taxis and direct the nearest cab to go to the customer.” “This task will be outsourced and a separate company will be assigned to take over this service, which would be implemented during next year,” he added. Bahzad stressed that Mowasalat had made available more taxis for the Eid festivities, particularly at popular locations. Source:Qatar Chronicle
