Taxis do a thriving business in Saudi Arabia – mainly because half of the population of this country (women) are not allowed to drive by law. I like seeing the cab drivers who are wearing the native dress, like this guy.
UPDATE – Since June 2018, Saudi women have been able to drive their own cars in this country. The transition for this society went relatively smoothly, with tremendous support from the government. Prior to that, car services like Uber and Careem had made a huge difference here for women, who were able to hail rides using phone apps. This alone gave women greater mobility and for many women, it eased their transportation problems.
