“The sensors will operate the taxi-meters automatically, as soon the passengers embark,” Muhammad Yusuf Saleh, Director of Fleet Driver Affairs at the Corporation said.

“The sensors’ installation project in taxis is considered one of the most outstanding projects of the Corporation’s management. The meters work automatically and operate when there is a passenger in the taxi. If the driver fails to operate it for any reason, the automatic system will take over, thus eliminating unacceptable practices that can cause an increase in complaints from customers,” he added.

He pointed out that the project will be implemented in phases according to the targeted timeframe, and will be evaluated in terms of satisfaction of customers.
