New Taxi Scheme

Abu Dhabi announced a new plan for taxis, and it was heavily covered in the press, with stories in the Gulf News, Khaleej Times, and Emirates Today (probably others too, but I only checked these three). After reading all these stories, I can't say that I understand exactly what the changes will mean for ownership, but then I don't understand the current system either. I understand that the fares are going up slightly - trips to work for me will be about 1.50 dirhams more expensive.

One thing that I noticed: There seems to be one group that is not really mentioned in any of these stories. It seems a little strange that none of these stories addressed what these changes will mean for the drivers.
