Muscat: The Ministry of Transport, Communications and Information Technology gave its approval to Aalam Assahab (clouds world) company to provide female taxi service via Otaxi app on demand, both for immediate and advance bookings.


The service offers online tracking of taxi routes at fixed prices set prior to the start of trips. The licence allows female drivers/operators to choose distinctive colours for their vehicles (white, pink). The service offers (customers) privacy and security.


The service will provide employment opportunities for female jobseekers, allowing them to work as taxi drivers or to earn additional income (while on queue for jobs). It will also benefit female workers, female students, mothers and children.


Female Otaxi service will be launched in Muscat Governorate on January 20, 2022, as a first phase, and later generalised in other governorates. --ONA
