Dubai Taxi Corporation has launched an initiative to install isolators in its fleet of taxis as part of further preventive measures against the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).
The isolators are in the form of a protection transparent partition screen that will ensure a full separation between taxi drivers and passenger, which will provide an additional level of protection during journeys.
The isolators have already been installed in many taxis and work is ongoing to install them in the rest of the Dubai Taxi fleet. The initiative is another step by RTA to safeguard the health and safety of the community.

Dubai Taxis vehicles undergo daily sanitisation and disinfection after each use and hand-sanitiser dispensers are always available on board. Taxi drivers strictly adhere to preventive practices including constantly wearing masks and gloves.
They also follow strict guidelines in opening and closing taxi doors to minimise contact and infection in line with directives aimed at protecting the health and safety of the community.
