TransAd gets Best Government m-Service Award

The award was presented by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

TransAD’s taxi-booking app has won the Best Government m-Service Award in the local government category.

The Centre for Regulation of Transport by Hire Cars in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi (TransAD), was presented with the accolade by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at the close of the Government Summit on Wednesday.

The award recognises excellence in government services.

The app allows customers to book taxis from different location across Abu Dhabi.

It is currently used by over 10,000 people on iPhone, iPad and iPod since last October and will be available for smart phone users on Android and in application stores within the next two months.

Mr Youssef Al Madani, Head of TransAD said the company received around 200 booking requests through the mobile application daily.

He expects the number to increase after the release of the app for Android and other smart phones.
