Cross-emi­rate wa­ter taxis would solve traf­fic is­sues

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

We all see let­ters com­plain­ing about traf­fic is­sues all over UAE. How­ever I feel there is a fan­tas­tic way to re­solve this is­sue. In my opin­ion the UAE gov­ern­ment should se­ri­ously con­sider the op­tion of start­ing in­ter-emi­rate wa­ter taxis and sure this will re­solve the traf­fic is­sue in a big way, con­trol the pol­lu­tion and re­duce stress lev­els of peo­ple stuck in traf­fic. Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Aj­man, Shar­jah and Ras Al Khaimah are all con­nected on the same coast. In­tro­duc­tion of wa­ter taxis would also open up rev­enue streams for the UAE gov­ern­ment and am sure com­muters would be more than happy to take these wa­ter taxis at a re­al­is­tic price as most are al­ready pay­ing for Sa­lik, fuel, fines, main­te­nance of cars, etc. Wa­ter taxis if planned well will be one of the big­gest bless­ings for ex­pats and lo­cal pop­u­la­tion mak­ing com­mut­ing faster, safer and stress free.
