Today sees the launch of the first Mowasalat franchise, Al Million Taxis, with a fleet of 300 new cars. They will bear the same distinctive turquoise paintwork as Karwa taxis, differentiated by a maroon roof and the Al Million logo. The company’s drivers have been undergoing familiarisation training over the last 2 months so they should know where they are going!

Al Million Taxis can be booked on the 24-hour toll-free number 800 5500 or hailed on the street. When you book a taxi by phone, you will receive an SMS in return with the expected arrival time and the driver’s number. Rates will be the same as Karwa taxis.
