The transport authority in Abu Dhabi is offering its taxi services for free to support retail outlets, who are struggling to cope with the exceptionally high number of requests for home deliveries. So far, outlets were distributing products through their own vans and facing delays due to excess demand for deliveries. The service in the wake of the Covid-19 coronavirus impact is free and no taxi bill will be charged from the customers either.

"The initiative is concerned with providing a delivery services to the public by making the taxis available to all sales outlets within Abu Dhabi," the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) said.

"Items purchased will be collected from sales points and delivered to customers. The drivers are well trained about preventive measures and wear masks and gloves during the delivery process."

All retail outlets can use Abu Dhabi Taxi app to benefit from this service by registering on 600535353.
