Dubai: Pet taxi 'beats public transport ban'


By Sharmila Dhal, Chief Reporter

Dubai: A British expat has launched a unique pet taxi service in Dubai to meet demand for commuting animals in the UAE.

Arthur Obyrne, a former commercial artist and financial software executive, who started the service in October told XPRESS, “Animals are banned from travelling on public transport here.

Pet owners whose cats or dogs fall ill end up taking half a day or more off work to be able to visit a vet. A couple of my friends approached me asking if I could help take their pets to the vet or spa or day-care centre. That’s how the idea of the pet taxi came about.” More info
