The Hybrid Camry Smart Taxis features GPS navigation installed with the latest Dubai maps and a Taxi dispatch system that allows the driver to receive orders from the call centre, directly on the screen with the exact location of the customer. The vehicles are also fitted with an integrated meter, and a Wi-fi router that provides high speed internet to the passengers, in addition to a multi-function car reader that reads NOL or other payment cards, and can also swipe traditional credit cards.

In 2013, Al-Futtaim Motors introduced Hybrid Camry to the UAE fleet market and adapted the vehicles to the needs of Dubai Taxi Corporation. With the introduction of Hybrid Toyota vehicles to the market, the demand for sustainable mobility is expected to grow in the coming few years due to the several financial and environmental benefits that these cars offer.

Jon Williams, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Motors said: “This event’s slogan is Grow Your City with Public Transport. We are very thankful to RTA, our long-term partners, for giving us the opportunity to take part in the growth of this nation’s mobility, being the largest supplier of public transport vehicles in the UAE.”
