KAUSTCentral replaces KAUSTride app for personal taxi bookings

Community Life, in collaboration with KAUST Smart, is pleased to announce that personal taxis can now be booked through KAUSTCentral.

The new taxi feature includes:

Push notifications when

  • A driver is assigned to your ride
  • Driver accepts the ride
  • Driver arrives and waits at the location
  • Passenger onboards the taxi
  • Passenger reaches destination
  • Customer satisfaction: rate the experience at the end of every ride.


Upcoming features:

Business taxis:

Business taxis still need to be booked on The KAUST Portal under the self-services tab.
