posted on 01/06/2017: 1563 views


Road and Transport Authority's Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) has beefed up its luxury limousine taxi fleet with hybrid vehicles type Lexus, Model ES300H 2017.

The move comes as part of a masterplan to reduce carbon emissions by 2% as called for by the Supreme Council of Energy in Dubai. It also conforms to the green economy transition, and supports RTA's Strategic Goal: ‘Environmental Safety and Sustainability.' "The Dubai Taxi Corporation is making every effort to generate innovative ideas and utilise the latest technologies to leverage the operational efficiency of its taxicabs, and conserve energy & environment," Dr. Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of Dubai Taxi Corporation said.

"In 2008, the DTC has commissioned a test run of 10 hybrid vehicles, resulting in diminishing carbon emissions by 34% and cutting fuel consumption by 27% per vehicle. The DTC now boasts of 385 eco-friendly hybrid vehicles," he added.

"The DTC's Five-Year Plan for 2021 approved converting 50%, i.e. 5,000 vehicles of its fleet into environment-friendly hybrid vehicles. The DTC shall approve initiatives and plans capable of ensuring a sustainable environment and reducing consumption using solar power generators in cabbies' accommodation, not to mention the treatment of carwash water at DTC's automated carwash station," concluded the CEO of the Dubai Taxi Corporation. http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302617045
