The Roads and Transport (RTA) has said taxis in Dubai have started charging a Dhs4 toll from yesterday when passing through Salik toll gates installed across four different locations in the emirate, Gulf News has reported. The metres of all 8,000 taxis, including the franchise cabs, have been upgraded and will begin to charge tolls while passing through any of the four toll gates on Al Maktoum Bridge, Al Safa, Al Garhoud Bridge and Al Barsha, said Adel Mohammad Shakeri, Director of the Transportation System Department, at the RTA's Public Transport Agency. "Customers will have an option to choose an alternative route and cabbies will have to ask them if they are willing to take a Salik route or an alternative route," said Shakeri.
