Taxi ranks would beat queue-jumping

Posted on Updated on

The summer is here already, and the heat is creating problems for those Abu Dhabi residents who have to wait for buses and taxis.
There are no sunshades available at many stops, and no discipline among those trying to board buses or taxis.
A lot of people jump the queue for taxis, while slower or more patient people have to wait forever.
I’d like to see dedicated taxi ranks in Abu Dhabi, with clear signage indicating where cabs should stop and where people should form queues.
Eventually I’d like to see state-of-the-art bus and taxi stops all across the city. And, if such a system comes, I hope all commuters abide by the rules.
