Dubai is following in the steps of many great metropolitan cities, like New York and London, with access to waterways. RTA operates a fleet of high speed modern boats driven by skillful and experienced drivers. All water taxis come with comfortable seats, LCD TV screens and food trays and can accommodate up to 10 passengers. Service runs from 10.00'am to 10.00'pm daily. Hiring a water taxi can be done at any of the 25+ marine stations located all around Dubai. Fares vary according to the length of the trip and, unlike other means of transport in Dubai, can be paid by credit or debit card or by cash. RTA has established a portal through which people can request water taxi service online.
