Travel by Dubai Taxi get dearer!


The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has confirmed increase in fare of a trip on Dubai Taxi by 5 per cent.

This rise comes as a part of RTA’s endeavours towards continuous improvement of its services.

The RTA described the rise in fare as a marginal increase. For example, if the fare is Dh30 it will now be priced Dh31.5. 

The taxi fare was increased around the same time last year, when the flag-down rate on the street went up from Dh3 to Dh5, which applies for the whole day.

In light of working towards reducing the carbon emissions and fuel consumption, RTA had earlier increased the number of Hybrid Taxis in its fleet.
