Mowasalat opens call for taxi operators


Relief may be on the way for some daily commuters after public transportation operator Mowasalat announced a tender for new taxi operators.

The Gulf Times reports that bidding is only open to locally-owned companies:

Transport provider Mowasalat has invited local companies to bid for taxi operating rights in Qatar, noting that any potential bidders must have the capability to organise and run a fleet of 300 taxis in the first stage of operations.

According to a tender announced  this week, “Mowasalat is extending its taxi operation rights to Qatar-owned companies according to its standards and logo”.

Mowasalat has sole rights to taxi operation in Qatar, namely in the form of Karwa. The company has offered no additional details to the announcement, but its previous official position had been that there were already enough taxis on the road in Qatar.
