Catching Taxis

Catching a taxi in Al Ain is easy. Place a call to AD taxis (Phone: 600535353). Passengers are asked for their current location and destination. The call will be placed on hold whilst the operator finds a taxi in close proximity to the pick up location. The driver will then call the customer to give their estimated time of arrival. Customers need to have a mobile phone.

It is also possible to “wave a taxi down” and they will stop if they are available. Generally, taxi drivers in Al Ain do not speak good English.

On Thursday and Friday evenings expect to have a longer wait as taxis are always busy on these nights.

Cost of a taxi can vary, but from one end of the city to the other can cost around AED50.
