There is a special taxi only for women in Dubai. A man can also take a cab, if he travels with a female friend, wife, sister or mother.
How to take a taxi for women in Dubai
Taxi for women is the usual kind of transport in Dubai. Its only difference from other taxis is the design in pink hues and the woman in the driver’s seat. She usually wears a uniform that includes a pink or beige hat over the headscarf and waistcoat of the same colors.

According to Muslim laws, a woman can not be alone with an unfamiliar man. In addition, many of them do not feel comfortable, sitting in the car with a male driver, especially at night. That`s why the taxi for women was created, and it should be mentioned, that it is in great demand both with local women and female travelers.

The full name of the taxi sounds like Ladies And Families Taxi, that is, in fact a man can use its services, but only if he`s accompanied by his wife, sister or mother.

Nowadays there are at least 50 cabs of this type in Dubai with female drivers from different countries who have underwent special training.

How to do?

1. Cabs for women in abundance are near the airport, shopping centers and hospitals. You recognize them by a pink or beige top.

2. Or summon it by calling 04 0480808. Tariffs and rules in the taxi for women are exactly the same as in any other taxis in Dubai.
