LTA should grab Grab’s balls or Gojek

Seriously the A-Rabs have come up with something interesting that we should copy asap.

On Christmas eve, it was announced that Dubai is to launch a company with Careem, the regional rival to Uber, to manage the ride-hailing system for all taxis operating in Dubai, the Gulf’s S’pore.

The Dubai authorities said this would be the world’s first partnership between a government regulator and a private ride-hailing app. Dubai, like other regulatory authorities, has clashed with fast-growing ride-hailing companies challenging the dominance of traditional taxi services.

Careem said

— it would have a 49% in the joint venture, which would manage e-hailing systems and online payments for almost 11,000 taxis; and

— the venture could be expanded to include other transportation services, such as buses, as Dubai seeks to extend its regional leadership in technology innovation of government services.

If Grab refuses to play ball with LTA, LTA should try Gojek.
