RAKTA signs agreement with Hala to launch e-hailing taxi service
We’re excited to announce Ras Al Khaimah as the second market for Hala taxis!
Leveraging Careem’s best in class technology, we have launched in a pilot phase in Ras Al Khaimah. We will gradually ramp up to a larger fleet of taxis and will be available across the Emirate by mid-August 2020.
We aim to provide Ras Al Khaimah residents and visitors with a smarter way to travel around the Emirate, giving them access to several benefits when booking a Hala taxi.
Clemence Dutertre, CEO of Hala: ‘Hala’s purpose is to empower people to move around more easily, leveraging Careem’s best in class technology to deliver amazing experiences. We believe this ambition is shared by the Ras Al Khaimah Transport Authority, and the City as a whole.
We are therefore proud to announce this important initiative, which signals the first arrival of e-hailing in the Emirate and Hala’s first expansion. We are excited to have the opportunity to now serve the people of this unique City, and call Ras Al Khaimah home.
Hala has been chosen as the trusted mode of transport for so many in Dubai for its high-quality standards. The ability to offer Ras Al Khaimah residents the affordability of taxis, alongside the multitude of convenience and safety benefits offered by the Careem app, have ensured true value can be enjoyed by all riders.’
Stay tuned for what’s coming next.
