Taxis in Dubai can now take up to two adults and a child aged below 14 years of the same family, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has tweeted.

“If you commute in taxis, you can now accompany your child (up to 14 years old) as a third passenger in the vehicle without using the seat next to the driver,” the RTA tweeted on Saturday.

All taxi travel had previously been restricted to two passengers per vehicle.

In September, the RTA issued new guidelines to allow up to four passengers to travel in Hala (Dubai Taxi) vans.

On Saturday, the RTA reiterated this limit. “The number of authorised passengers in the three-row family vehicle (van) remains four until further notice,” the RTA added.
