The Mercedes Vito will now be available for special needs passengers who are on wheelchairs.

The centre for Regulations of Transport, of Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport is providing a new service for people with special needs through Hire cars. These taxis have been made in Spain and have a hydraulic platform which raises the wheelchair into the vehicle. The wheelchair is tightly set by a strap and customers are provided with special seat belts as well. Other than accommodating people with special needs it also offers four regular passenger seats.

“We have six such cars, two at the airport and four for the city. The charge is normal taxi fare and disabled customers may also use their discount card provided by the Ministry of Social Affairs,” said Mohammed Al Qumzi, General Manager of the center.

Passengers with special needs will benefit from this service since it will improve the overall customer experience making their commute more comfortable.
