The number of passengers allowed has been increased to three in regular taxis in Dubai, if the third passenger is a child, up to 14 years old, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) tweeted on Saturday.
Moreover, the passenger seat next to the taxi driver must remain empty due to precautions for COVID-19. You can now accompany your child (up to 14 years old) as a third passenger in the vehicle without using the seat next to the driver.
In September, Dubai taxi vans were allowed to take a total four passengers if the travel is booked via Hala, the joint venture ride-hailing app between RTA and Careem. Each of the two rows of seats for passengers in the vans is allowed to take two passengers (a total of four for both rows) to maintain social distancing.
“The number of authorised passengers in the three-row family vehicle (Van) remains 4, as a maximum, until further notice,” the RTA tweeted.
