Dubai Taxi offers road assistance with Smart Tow
Smart Tow allows Dubai's taxi drivers to call for roadside assistance using their smartphone
Dubai taxi drivers can now call for roadside assistance using Smart Tow, a smartphone application launched by RTA's Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC).
The DTC and Arabian Automobile Association (AAA) have partnered to provide roadside solutions to taxi drivers through the ease of their mobile.
Smart Tow is designed to ease the delivery of roadside assistance to the public, develop a modern way that helps reduce road traffic accidents and congestion and improve the level of service through the rapid deployment of recovery service, if needed.
Dr. Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of Dubai Taxi Corporation, RTA, said: "Launching the Smart Tow system provides a platform for marketing the recovery service and expediting the response to accidents. It forms part and parcel of DTC relentless efforts to provide top class and smart taxi services to the public with the aim of uplifting the level of service to excellent standards.
"This service is operated via the ‘Smart Tow' app through sending the coordinates of the vehicle's location to the nearest recovery vehicle amongst recovery firms registered in the system."
