RTA Slashes Taxi Fares In Dubai Due To Drop In UAE’s Fuel Price

The mecca of fuel resources, the Gulf, has been witnessing a sudden surge and drop flowing shoulder to shoulder since last year. With the start of 2023, the prices of fuel in the UAE have dropped drastically resulting in good news for Emiratis. Now take that taxi instead of the bus or metro without worrying about the price. A drop in fuel prices leads to a reduction in taxi prices in Dubai.

Taxi Tariff Reduces From Dhs 2.19 To Dhs1.97 Per Km

This round-off savings of 22fils per km by taxi now. So if you are left wondering why your Careem or Hala cab cost you less starting today, then now you know why! Although there would be no difference in the basic taxi tariff of Dhs12. But guess you will still be saving some money during the mid-month crisis sneaking in slowly.

The cheapest option is also not to call a Hala cab. All types of taxi services offered in the city, including limousines, are subject to reduced pricing. So it might be the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to that posh limousine ride you’ve always wanted. And you thought there would be no bright side to January!
