The Toyota Camry hybrid vehicles have been added to Dubai Taxi Corporation’s fleet as part of a plan to reduce pollution caused by vehicle emissions.

Acting CEO of Dubai Taxi Ahmad Mohammed Al Hammadi said: “The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) makes unremitting efforts to bring about a shift in the infrastructure systems of mass transit so that they are environmentally frien­dly, and meet the increasing demand for transportation in the emirate.”

The vehicles were launched yesterday (pictured) during an official ceremony at Al Wasel Auditorium at the headquarters of the RTA.
