What? Dubai Taxi starting rates (flag down rates) will increase from Dh3 to Dh5 starting December 1st, announced the Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai (RTA). Another reversion by the RTA saw its way to basic booking charges for cabs around the city, with peak-hour booking prices from Dh12 up from Dh10. While non peak hours cost Dh8 up from Dh6.
Another helpful bit of info is the addition of Nol cards payments in Taxis using newly launched No Card packages launched recently by RTA to cover all the new masses of public transportation around Dubai, which includes the Dubai Metro, the Dubai Tram, Dubai Buses, and all marine transport.
Peak hours Include
7 AM to 10 AM – 4 PM to 8 PM peak hours for Taxis during Saturday to Wednesday.
4 PM to 12 PM Evening peak hours for Taxis during Thursdays to Fridays.
