It was recently announced that there will now be an extra charge in the form of a Dhs3 fee when taking a Careem or Uber ride in Dubai.

In a statement, Careem said,  “The RTA are now applying a fee on all rides taken with app-based ride-hailing platforms”.

The fee will not apply to RTA taxis booked through the Careem app – a service that is scheduled to launch shortly following a deal between the two parties earlier this month.

Uber has made an official announcement about the regulation, too, and are working on implementing the change.
