A new taxi service linking Ajman and Dubai will commence next year, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.
The organisation, which is also carrying out final tweaks to the Dubai Metro network ahead of its launch in September, said that 30 per cent of the work on the Ajman-Dubai route has already been completed.
A total of 17 stops have been approved, making it easier for those with real estate in Dubai and Ajman to travel between the two emirates.
Speaking to the Khaleej Times about the development, Mohammed bin Omair, director planning and survey at the Ajman Municipality, which is working with the RTA on the project, said that the stops will be easily accessible to commuters throughout Dubai and Ajman.
Tickets will be made available via a dedicated hotline, while commuters can also flag down the taxis at the designated stops.
It is hoped that the new service will also boost tourism, in addition to easing congestion.
