Unsure where the taxi stand was upon our arrival at the Dubai Airport, we sought the assistance of an airport personnel, who, to our surprise, directed us to a stand where several ladies in pink uniforms were waiting in front of a row of pink cars! Next to the pink cars, were a row of red-topped taxis.
These pink taxis, driven by ladies, are intended for female passengers and families while the red ones are for men.
I am so loving this concept! I wish we had the same system in our country. Imagine traveling solo and arriving in a foreign land at an ungodly hour. Doesn't the thought of hopping into a car driven by a male stranger to some unfamiliar place scare you?
With her permission, I took this picture of our lady driver who was from Sri Lanka.
Yayyyyyy for the pink ladies!!!
