DUBAI // Commuters or businesses can now book water taxis online via the Roads and Transport Authority website.

Commuters can select a commute or charter option, pick-up and destination point and the service operates from 10am up to 9pm.

A reference number and booking receipt will help the commuter make a payment online or later at the water taxi station.

“This service is particularly important during events hosted by individuals or organisations such as hotels and businesses, especially tour operators offering water cruises during conferences, exhibitions and carnivals,” said Moaza Al Marri, RTA’s director of marketing and corporate communication.

“The new service is intended to streamline the water-taxi booking experience for the public as part of our efforts to offer superb marine transit services in Dubai.”
