Helping healthcare heroes and the public on those urgent taxi trips…

Hala is already the city’s most affordable hailed taxi service, but they’re currently offering a further 20 per cent off rides to selected hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Until April 18, customers will be able to take advantage of this special offer. The discount is capped at Dhs10 per ride, and 10 rides per customer.

It’s great news for workers in the healthcare sector who are still on to the frontline of the Covid-19 pandemic, keeping us safe and caring for our sick and vulnerable.

It’s not just for healthcare professionals though: any member of the public can use this discount when attending medical appointments.

Clemence Dutertre, CEO of Hala, said: “As our city faces challenging times, we want to put our community and the people who are supporting it first. Inspired by the true heroes who are still selflessly travelling to the front line in hospitals and clinics around Dubai everyday, we are introducing this discount on their Hala rides.”

Earlier this week, we covered the fact that Hala is matching all tips to their Captains made via its hailing app. So why not use your savings to pay it forward?
