Similar to many transport systems around the world, just swipe your Nol Card at the entrance of the platform.

    With more than 5,300 RTA taxis available, hailing a cab is never a problem. Almost all drivers are familiar with our location and the various drop off points around Dubai World Trade Centre. Female passengers can also opt for a Ladies-only taxi, should they prefer to. When required, you can book a taxi in advance by calling +971 4 208 0808.


    Fares start at 5 AED or 12 AED if pre-booked and most taxis in Dubai are now equipped to take credit card payment.

  • Private Taxi
    Dubai offers two private taxi services, Careem and Uber. Both offer a pre-paid service through their apps, and convenient pick and drop locations have been established throughout the venue.

    Private Taxi’s and on-demand transport services are growing in popularity and are readily available in Dubai. If you already have a Careem or Uber app from another country, the same app can be used to book your ride in Dubai.

    If you are unfamiliar with Careem or Uber, both companies offer downloadable apps for both Andriod and iOS platforms. They are easy to use and offer convenient payment options using your credit card or cash if you prefer.
