IN a bid to live up to the “Happy Dubai” concept in the desert oasis of Dubai, women chauffeurs will soon be plying the streets.

The Roads and Transport Authority’s Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) and Careem, the online car booking provider, will launch the limousine service dubbed “Amira” (Princess) featuring female drivers.
