The Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai has clarified that there is no change in the prices and tariffs of public transportation and transportation except for a small change in the tariff of taxis, which is a dynamic change based on the change in fuel prices in the local market, where the tariff is calculated based on the fuel consumption per kilometer.

The authority indicated that the considered increase that was applied to taxi vehicles will not affect the tariff for opening and closing the meter.

The authority stated that it provides various options for mass transportation, the most important of which are the Dubai Metro, Dubai Tram and public transport buses, and an integrated system of various marine transport means. These means are distinguished by their geographical coverage of the various regions of the Emirate of Dubai.

Over the past years, the Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai has worked to provide a friendly infrastructure for residents that meets the requirements and standards of transportation integration, and enhances the connectivity between the components of the city, to facilitate the access of residents to and from mass transit stations, and to ensure that pedestrians and cyclists have access to these means in a safe and easy way. In addition to providing a qualified environment for people of determination.

In implementing the various mass transit projects, the authority was keen to enhance the linkage between the stations of the various means of transportation, development projects, and the attractions surrounding the area, by developing the requirements of the first and last mile, and by providing a set of elements and requirements for transportation integration, such as public transport bus stops and bicycle paths, Pedestrian crossings and rest areas, shaded areas and paths, cosmetic agriculture, private vehicle rental stands, and bicycle parking lots, with the aim of encouraging residents to use non-traditional means of transportation, such as walking, bicycles and (electric scooters), to move from their homes to mass transit stations. And vice versa.
