Legitimate taxis in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, are controlled and metered by the government. Within the taxicab fleet, there are “pink cabs,” or “ladies’ cabs,” easily identified by their pink roofs. The cabs are driven by fully qualified women cab drivers for the exclusive use of unaccompanied women and their families, regardless of nationality. Women have the freedom to choose any cabs they desire, but the pink cabs can provide security and peace of mind.
