Driving in Dubai
Taxis are the most common way of getting around. Metered cabs from Dubai Transport Corporation, recognized by their cream color, are efficient and have well-trained and courteous drivers. The fare is Dhs3.00 for pick-up (Dhs3.50 from 10.00pm to 6.00am), followed by Dhs1.17 per kilometer. It is also possible to hire a taxi for a 12-hour period for a fixed fee of Dhs500. Alternatively, Dubai Transport Corporation operates a fixed-fare minibus service to and from the other emirates. The fares of non-metered taxis are negotiated between driver and passenger, starting at a minimum of around Dhs5 for short local journeys, while Dhs10 to Dhs15 is the rule of thumb if you cross the Creek from one side of the city to the other.
Dubai Transport taxis also operate a service from the airport. The pick-up fee is Dhs16 and the fare then accrues at Dhs1.17 per kilometer. Most hotels operate transport for their guests. There are also several radio taxi companies which have cars on call and whose numbers are available at all hotels. Website: www.dubaitransport.gov.ae
