The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has reduced the fare for all taxis by 10 per cent.
In a special statement to Al-Bayan, Adel Shakri, Director of the Planning and Business Administration Department at the Public Transport Agency on Dubai Roads and Transport Authority, said that the Roads and Transport Authority seeks to develop its services and improve their quality, and that it reviews taxi prices periodically every two months, depending on the change in oil prices.
He confirmed that the taxi fare was reduced by 10%, from 2.19 dirhams to 1.97 dirhams per kilometer, explaining that the tariff included all types of taxis, limousines, airport taxis, and others. He explained that the authority had previously reduced prices last October, stressing that taxi prices in Dubai are among the best prices compared to other destinations in the world. The UAE on December 30 substantially reduced retail fuel prices for the month of January 2023.
