The amended Clause No. (2) of the Resolution outlines the roles of the Public Transport Agency, a subsidiary of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which include issuing licenses and permits, among others. The Resolution also tasks the Public Transport Agency with setting guidelines for the use of taxis by people of determination and ensuring taxi service companies comply with the terms and conditions of permits.


The amended Clause No. (5) lists a number of violations which will invite fines, while the amended Clause No. (7) pertains to the fines that will be imposed on violators. The total value of the fines that violators can be charged is AED50,000 for corporate violators and AED30,000 for individuals.
