The taxi meter rate in Dubai has increased from Dh1.99 per km to Dh2.21 per km, according to a report on Saturday (July 2).
In a Gulf News report, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed that the increase does not include the flag down rate. The minimum taxi fare also remains at Dh12.
The taxi meter price change will be calculated based on fuel usage per kilometer, according to RTA. Any change in the taxi fare will depend on the current prices of fuel in the UAE, the RTA added.
The increase in the meter rate follows months of significant hikes in fuel prices in the UAE. In June, fuel prices increased by 13 percent.
The fare on the Dubai Metro, Dubai Tram and public buses, however, remain unchanged. ICA/Expat Media
