Flag-down rate will be increased from Dh3 to Dh5.

Dubai: The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has approved the change in the starting rate of taxi meters starting December 1, 2014 in order to integrate this service with the Nol cards package launched by the RTA.

“The new flag-down rate will range from Dh3 to Dh5 for the direct trip from roads during the morning peak hours from 7 am to 10 am, and during evening peak hours from 4 pm to 8 pm. The flag-down rate of orders from the booking and dispatch center will also be modified from Dh6 to Dh8 during off-peak hours; while during morning and evening peak hours, the flag-down rate will range from Dh10 to Dh12. This modification is applicable from Saturday to Wednesday, while peak hours start form 4 pm to 12 midnight on Thursdays and Fridays,” said Dr Yousef Mohammed Al Ali, CEO of RTA Public Transport Agency.

“The decision applies to the Dubai taxi vehicles and taxis operated by other franchise companies under the umbrella of the RTA. The upgrade of taxi meters operating in Dubai will be completed within three weeks starting from December 1,” he added.
