In Dubai, we typically used Uber for different types of services like “select” and “premium”. However, there is no Uber-X option available. The cars used for these services were Lexus, Infinity, and Tesla. On average, the cost of a single Uber ride was around 50-60 AED.
There is a taxi point in every mall, where you can find a city taxi. At this type of taxi, you pay by the taxi meter. The cost of the trip by this taxi is cheaper than using Uber. Additionally, the presence of these taxi points in every mall makes it a convenient option for those who require transportation within the city. Overall, utilizing the services of these city taxis not only provides a budget-friendly alternative but also ensures easy access and reliable transportation for individuals visiting malls.
Sometimes we hail taxis on the street, and they are usually Toyota Camry cars.
