Taxi and Taxi Limousine

Mowasalat oversee the running of a fleet of taxis and taxi limousines which keeps the service running constant and fairly. The cars consist of modern air-conditioned vehicles which is an essential in the Qatar climate. The taxis are metered and all have an initial charge of 4QR ($1.10) with 1.20QR (0.33c) per kilometre during the day and 1.80QR ($0.49c) per kilometre at night or on long distance journeys. However, there is a reputation that currently there are not enough taxis on the roads meaning at busy times it can be difficult to secure a taxi, with long waits for booked taxis and difficulty in hailing them from the street. The easiest method is to queue at a taxi rank in a popular area for example malls and hotels. The base rates for a limousine are 20QR ($5.49) initial fee and then 2QR ($0.55) per kilometre.
