Previously, all taxi travel had been restricted to two passengers per vehicle.

The Road and Transport Authority guidelines now allow up to four passengers to travel in Hala (Dubai Taxi) vans, bookable on the Careem app. Previously, all taxi travel had been restricted to two passengers per vehicle.

Due to the two rows of passenger seating present in Hala van taxis, four passengers can sit two on a row, to maintain social distancing. The price for the van service is identical to the price of a regular taxi.

With limited Dubai Taxi vans available for street hail in the city, booking on the Careem app allows riders to secure their personnel ride from the comfort of their homes, and see their waiting time and fare upfront. Average arrival times for Hala vans currently stand at six minutes.

Clemence Dutertre, CEO of Hala, said: “We are pleased to announce this positive move and hope it can make travel that little bit simpler for those of our riders who need to travel in groups, whether that be friends or families.”

How to book:

.    Open the Careem app and select ‘Hala Taxi’

.    Confirm your pickup location, and enter your destination

.    Choose ‘Hala – Van Taxi’ from the list of car types, seeing your waiting time and far upfront
