Transition to alternative types of fuel is relevant even for the Emirates, apparently, of not having special problems with oil. Nevertheless, in the country the campaign for introduction of electric vehicles instead of habitual "petrol" vehicles gains steam. For owners of cars of new generation the most loyal conditions are provided, including – the isolated places on numerous parking and parkings. And here owners of usual cars in the light of new policy were kind of outsiders. In case the careless motorist on intention or accidentally takes the place intended for the electric vehicle, he will be forced to fill up the local budget for 1000 dirhams. So much the penalty sum for "infringement of the rights" of owners of electric vehicles is.
In the report officials of Management of traffic and transport have reported that for electric cars in Dubai about 220 parking reservation are allocated and made. At the first stage this indicator was 70 places, but became clear soon: the effective policy of advance of electric vehicles promotes fast increase in number of their owners. Therefore for the purpose of comprehensive encouragement of buyers of electric cars, parking spaces for the cars working at renewable will be allocated and further. And, it will concern not only the state, but also private parkings.
As much as possible to save from mistakes of owners of petrol cars – own, and taken in a hire in Dubai, parking spaces for electric cars will designate a special marking. Thus, the inadvertent mistake will be excluded, and the obstinacy – is punished by the large penalty designed to talk some sense a grief - the car owner and to teach him to reckon with the law and people around.
According to long-term plans, the authorities of Dubai intend to increase a share of electric cars to 2% of the total number of vehicles by 2020. And in 2030, as envisioned by Management of traffic and transport, their specific weight has to be about 10%. Such situation will emphasize elite position of the Emirates in questions of technical progress and relevant innovations again and also – will allow influencing positively an ecological situation in the country.
Yes, it is valid, infinite traffic jams between Dubai and Sharjah forced the authorities to take the most drastic measures on correction of a situation. The new road between Sharjah and Dubai will help to cope with kilometer traffic jams. Already by the end of 2018 it is going to optimize a number of outcomes and to build new trasses which will help to unload a many thousands car traffic in two directions. A number of projects already is in work, and by January, 2019 all drawn-up plans will be completely implemented.
In the statement the minister of development of infrastructure Abdullah ibn Mohammed Belkheyf Al Nuaymi was rather categorical. He assured residents of Sharjah and Dubai that within the next 6-8 months they will be able to forget about traffic jams completely. Despite the impressive cost of the general project of improvement of the road message – 200 million dirhams, are already mastered about 75% now, and the result of works doesn't keep itself waiting. The video cameras installed along local routes show the free movement of passenger and cargo transport within a day. An exception - short rush hour in morning and evening hours when citizens reach for work, and tourists a dense flow on the rented cars in the UAE, go towards local shopping centers and a beach strip.
Among the main plans of the authorities for improvement of a road situation – opening of the four-kilometer bridge in August of the current year. Besides, it is decided to redirect a significant amount of trucks. So, in certain time when on trasses the maximum number of cars is observed, trucks will be able to use only (E611) Route Emirates not to complicate already difficult road situation. Especially for heavy-load cars on the road the special strip and dozens of capacious parking spaces will be equipped.
Also among long-term plans which need to be implemented till 2021, - construction of the fourth bridge between Dubai and Sharjah. According to specialists, it will allow to unload Al Ittihad Highways overflowed today, Mohammed Bin Zayed and the route Emirates. Design works are already started, and in the nearest future on an object intensive construction will begin.
The budget taxi from Careem: experience of Dubai successfully adopts Abu Dhabi. 16.02.18.
Competitive wars and price peripetias in 2016 put the private companies of the taxi literally beyond the law. Today the problem managed to be resolved successfully, and "private traders" acquired the official status again. Moreover, after obtaining the relevant documents of the company had an opportunity to work in the largest cities of the Emirates – certainly, on the terms of observance of initial arrangements and support of loyal price policy.
In the nearest future the operator of the Careem taxi, famous in the country, is going to start the budget service in Abu DhabiI.it is necessary only to get approval of the new project from regulators. In Dubai the company works long ago and successfully, pleasing the locals and guests preferring to move on passenger transport. Unfortunately, in 2016, after three years of successful work in the market of the UAE, Careem and its main competitor Uber were forced to wind down the work partially. The reason – violation of the price policy which is accurately regulated by the local legislation.
Effects of temporary idle time didn't keep themselves waiting. Today Uber couldn't enter the Abu Dhabi market, a tidbit for business of the taxi because of a large number of inhabitants and tourists, despite numerous services of hiring a car in Dubai. Careem managed to return on the lost positions again, in the beginning having refused the budget services. Today the company declares the plans for introduction to a price of the inexpensive trips available for all comers. Now it is necessary to undergo the procedure of approval of the prices, and it is possible to begin advertizing campaign for drawing attention to new useful service.
The local legislation orders to private taxi services to raise strictly certain sums of funds from clients. So:
And, this price doesn't depend on a type of the car even if it is a limousine. As for services of Careem, the cost of their trips is:
Compensation is promised the motorists who have paid the VAT upon purchase of Salik. 11.01.18
The first days after introduction in the Emirates of a value added tax wasn’t without unpleasant incidents. The citizens who have decided to acquire cards or counters Salik have forcedly overpaid the VAT, despite release of this category of services from the taxation. The reason – system failures at gas stations where "clever cars" automatically charged 5% for all types of the realized goods. A considerable part of similar cases has been recorded on January 1 – in the first day of the beginning of tax reform when the recustomized equipment worked literally in the test mode.
The tax law entered since the beginning of 2018 unambiguously specifies – cards and counters Salik, Etisalat and Du at gas stations and in supermarkets aren't subject to taxation of the VAT. Certainly, today all equipment has undergone the corresponding change-over, and now the overpayment is excluded. Nevertheless, the number of the recorded complaints is rather high. Therefore, despite the insignificant sum, the management of the "guilty" bus stations has made the decision to return to all buyers illegally paid sum of money.
Among victims – both locals, and the tourists who have hired cars in Dubai. From each 100 dirhams spent for purchase of the map or a counter Salik for driving through toll highways 5 dirhams has been in addition received. It should be noted: an incident has occurred only at some gas stations. Therefore buyers were perplexed – still yesterday in other place they paid precisely required sum and today from them additional 5 dirhams have suddenly demanded, reminding of collection of a new tax.
It is necessary to pay tribute to attentiveness and scrupulousness of citizens – the vast majority of them has kept checks for purchase of road maps where the overpayment fact is noted. This useful habit will allow them to get the refund without problems now, having addressed at gas station where the card has been acquired.
The management of transport and roads reminds again: services of public transport, and toll highways don't fall under action of the VAT, and any attempts of his collection are illegal. As well as before tax reform, driving through the paid section of the road will cost 4 dirhams.
New prices: in the Emirates fuel has risen in price. 05.01.2018
Since January 2018 all of gas station in the territory of the Emirates raised fuel prices. Growth of cost of gasoline didn't become surprise – was reported about it in December of last year, and exact price level was specified in the relevant document of the Ministry of Energy. Specialists claim that the next rise in price is connected with a situation in the world market, namely – with growth of the international oil prices. As for increase percent, it is insignificant – now owners of transport and clients of Dubai rent a car services should overpay only about 2-3 cents for liter of gasoline or diesel fuel.
Experts started talking about future increase in cost of fuel resources even in the fall when at the end of October oil reached the maximum level of the prices in the last two years. At the same time earlier, after considerable falling of cost of oil v2016 to year, fall of the same year the Emirates reduced oil production on 1,8mln barrels a day, at the same time sharply having reduced export volumes. The arrangement of the countries of OPEC on decrease in extraction of fuel was several times prolonged, expecting stabilization of a situation in the world market. The formed deficit also became the fuel rise in price reason. Besides, the situation is influenced by the war in Iraq which is also one of the largest exporters of oil.
One more factor which influenced growth of cost of gasoline in the Emirates is an introduction in the country of a value added tax to a considerable part of goods and services. 5% of the former price, considering their low level in a fuel segment, - the small sum, almost imperceptible for the inhabitant. Especially as it is about the country with rather high standard of living.
Last year was celebrated by an unstable situation in the field of pricing on oil products. So, literally in November, 2017 the cost of gasoline decreased by 4%, and now it is again increased. According to forecasts of the World Bank, in the come 2018 oil will rise in price approximately for 6%, having reached a point in 56 dollars for barrel. Therefore with a bigger share of probability it is possible to expect further increase in prices.
The Careem taxi in Dubai: excellent service at the budget prices. 27.12.17
New budget service of the Go taxi from Careem in the Emirates forced to speak about itself all who prefer the individual transport or Dubai car rent services. The minimal cost of a trip in the comfortable car will be about 12 dirhams, or a little more than 3 dollars. Thus, services of the new economical taxi will cost nearly for 30% cheaper, than "standard" journey in the Careem car, and will be completely similar at cost to service of the state taxi which is directed by Management on roads and transport.
The new taxi service is tested already several months, and so far test results meet all expectations. Demonstrate to it the word Bassel Al Nakhlaui holding a position of the top manager of Careem branch in Dubai. Results of testing were provided on court of specialists of Management on roads, and any complaints didn't follow. More than 300 cars were involved in the first trial trips for the megalopolis it is very little, but there is quite enough for working off of the regular and emergency situations arising during work of the normal city taxi.
Important point to which all future clients should pay attention: the rate of the new taxi will be not constant, but floating. The decision to sweep by the car in rush hours will be in the sum for 10-50% more expensive, than in normal time when it is possible to keep within 12-15 dirhams easily. Dynamic pricing – not a whim, but desire to evenly distribute loading and to provide to clients high-quality service and also – to save them from tiresome expectation of the ordered car.
In long-term plans of Careem – sharing of cars of several services. From the most probable partners It should be noted the state taxi mentioned above which is directed by Management of roads and transport of RTA. Such decision will allow reducing considerably the number of cars on roads. And, so new traffic jams and emergencies will manage to be avoided. Besides, service intends to start service a limousine taxi, and – to offer it to clients of the price 30-50% lower, than work now.
Transport life in the Emirates: rains, bridges and discounts for penalties. 19.12.17
Those who traveled around the Emirates by the car or used service of cheap car-rental in Dubai, note faultless quality of local roads. Local authorities should pay tribute – in the desire to bring the country to the first place in the world on traffic safety, they do everything possible also impossible. Among new interesting projects about which all motorists of the country speak, - construction of the new bridge from Dubai to Sharjah thanks to which it will be possible to optimize transport connection between emirates.
More than 17000 cars an hour, 7 driving lanes, a security guarantee and a qualitative covering – a new construction draw general attention to themselves even today when until its opening there is more than half a year. The total cost of construction is the impressive sum of 200 million dollars however, specialists are sure that all expenses are completely justified. The bridge is designed to unload a difficult section of the route where because of sharp reduction of number of strips constant traffic jams are observed and there are major accidents.
Intensive road construction – only a part of the general master plan of development of automobile highways in the Emirates. Its purpose – improvement of transport infrastructure and, of course, simplification of everyday life of the ordinary citizens preferring to use the individual transport for work and rest. Perhaps, the last moment forced the authorities of the smallest emirate in the UAE of Adzhman to make concessions to payers of penalties for violation of traffic regulations and to suggest to pay off a debt at a discount of 50%. "Action" works only till March of next year, and motorists should be calculated with approach of spring for own violations in full.
However transport life of the Emirates consists not only of holidays. So, last days off in Dubai went heavy rains that there were the reason more than 580 accidents of different complexity. At the same time the police received more than 12500 calls from the citizens who faced difficulties at the movement on street circuits because of deterioration in visibility. Fortunately, the measures in time taken and consciousness of owners of a car allowed avoiding serious problems. The road service always timely notifies citizens on close weather conditions to warn them against a travel to mountainous areas and to remind of preparation of the car for a rainy season.
We report to our constants and future clients about introduction in the country since 2018 of a value added tax in the amount of 5% of the prices of goods and services. The accepted tax reform will allow economy of the UAE to experience temporary difficulties and to avoid more drastic measures on increase in revenues of the budget.
Reasons and features of adjustment of the tax law
Reduction of prices of oil in the world market negatively affects economy of Gulf States which wellbeing is defined by extraction of "black gold". On purpose not to allow deterioration in an economic situation and to receive a new source of income the management of the Commonwealth countries of SSAGPZ made the decision to change the existing tax law and to impose a value added tax at the rate of 5%. The vast majority of negotiators among who – the UAE and Saudi Arabia, supported introduction of the VAT in the next two years. In turn, the state of Qatar refrained from introduction of amendments to own tax law so far. Possessing the reserves of natural gas, greatest in the world, this country is ready to endure several years of economic downturn with ease and still to gain stable income from mining.
According to a number of experts, introduction of the VAT can affect the standard of living of ordinary citizens negatively. Especially as the new tax will automatically increase the cost of goods and services – in such a way producers and suppliers will secure them selves against loss of a part of profit, having shifted the VAT for shoulders of the end user. Perhaps, these fears forced legislators to choose the minimum rate – 5% while the system of the taxation of the majority of the countries of the world provides 18-20%. Besides, the inventory and the services exempted from the taxation is developed. Are included in it:
Economic calculations showed that introduction of the VAT at the minimum rate will allow increasing the GDP level of the Emirates by 4-5%.
Now in connection with the expected changes in the UAE the tax administration to which duties control of collection of the VAT and timely receipt in the budget of the corresponding sums of money will belong is already created. Besides, the relevant acts are already prepared and approved. It is expected that within the next year tax reform will allow increasing revenues by 12 billion dirham. Besides, thanks to introduction of the VAT the country will take a serious step on approach of the domestic tax law to the existing international standards.

Competitions between representatives of different professions strengthen corporate spirit and encourage desire to become even better. The next fitness-challenge of Dubai Fitness Challenge (DFC) which became good tradition proved force and coordination of work of local police officers. The team on "perfectly" coped with a difficult task – towage of Airbus A380. The huge serial airliner managed to be shifted on 100 m by only one force of hands. Along with the victory in a competition it was succeeded to break the previous record when the team of 100 people managed to subdue the airplane weighing 218 tons at competitions in Hong Kong. The audience could be convinced: in the list of advantages of local police – not only successful capture of violators and timely check of services of budget rent a car in Dubai, but also excellent physical shape, and effective team work of employees.
Rewarding of winners took place in a festive atmosphere in presence of a number of the leading persons concerning air transport and safety. The commander-in-chief of police of Dubai was handed the certificate confirming a world record. The document was received, from Huda Kasab, directors of Guinness World Records Are thin.
In a thanksgiving response the major general Al-Marri thanked for support of the sheikh of the Emirates, the chairman of Department of Civil Aviation and all those who took part in preparation and competition. Besides, the contribution to increase in sports culture in society was noted. According to police officials, entering of record about an event into the Guinness Book of Records will increase prestige of the country and will help to support the public initiatives in the field of sport.
Sporting mass events in the Emirates traditionally bring together tens of thousands of the viewers and participants from the different countries of the world. The organization was jn high level: everything is carried out with enviable scope, doing each competition interesting, spectacular and memorable.
A few days ago the former British politician David Ballantin has told the public in what the attempt of "free" travel by the taxi of Dubai has cost him. In spite of the fact that the event has taken place more than three years ago, emotions of the story-teller haven't gone out, and today actively read his memoirs and discuss in network. Possibly, their publication has been provoked by recent story about other foreigner who has got to prison whose conflict character has overset his plans for rest and has forced to get acquainted personally with prison rules in the Emirates.
In 2013, during rest in the Emirates, Ballantin with friends has called the taxi. But it wasn't using his services: at once after landing there was a conflict then passengers have demanded to stop. The taxi driver has passed several tens of meters and has stopped near local police department to declare on troublemakers. The authority has forced Ballantin to pay the sum equivalent to three dollars for a call. Having withdrawn money in the next ATM, angry British have thrown them into an open window of the taxi.
However, the driver wasn't satisfied with this action and again has demanded payment, having gone out of the car. Verbal trial has quickly developed into the short fight begun by the driver of taxi. Responsible and participants of incident have been immediately detained. The police have taken away the passport from Ballantin and, despite of a ridiculous occasion of the conflict, after two years' expectation of a sentence have placed for prison for 69 days, and then - deported home.
Interesting fact: complaining of the adventures in the Emirates, British don’t regret for the behavior and doesn't complain that he hasn't used services of a cheap hire of the car in Dubai. His claims are directed towards the government of the country which couldn't or hasn't wanted to render legal aid to the citizen and to save it from troubles. Reaction of the authorities to so loud statement is still unknown.
By the way, complaints to taxi drivers – as a rule, natives of the poor countries of Asia and Africa, get to police quite often. Among the most frequent reasons of discontent of clients there is an ignorance of the map of the city, rough behavior, violation of the rules of the movement, disembarkation of passengers halfway, etc.
Visitors of the largest shopping center Dubai Mall are waited by the next surprise. Transport reform of the megalopolis allowed to bring to their attention service of delivery to the shopping center territory on the modern comfortable car - the UAV. The test project will begin work in the nearest future, but already now it is possible to predict popularity of new service and its powerful contribution to improvement of a transport situation not only in the city, but in the near future and through the whole country.
Up-to-date pilot less transport will constantly fly between Dubai Mall and Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard where the underground parking is located. Especially for it the corridor 550 m long is already constructed. Capacity of one vehicle is expected the average family of the United Arab Emirates consisting usually of six-seven people. At the same time work of other means of transport won't be complicated .Therefore owners of individual cars and, for example that who uses rental cars in Dubai it isn't necessary to worry especially: the new type of transport won't become the reason of traffic jams, accidents or other road cataclysms.
Innovation with pilot less transport for popular driving direction towards Dubai Mall – one of aspects of the project of implementation of artificial intelligence to the sphere of the transport system of the multimillion city. Its main objectives – optimization of traffic and increase in level of safety on the street of the megalopolis.
Despite the high level of safety on routes of the Emirates, here nevertheless separate violations take place. The considerable part of then are journey on a red signal of the traffic light. And, the rule is violated by both private traders, and clients of services of rent cars in Dubai, without being afraid of possible road accidents and damaging of another car. The police decided to start scale fight against this phenomenon and initiated installation of the hidden cameras designed to fix each similar case. Thus, the third stage of the system implementation of the observation was started.
The first results inspire optimism – after the beginning of installation of cameras the number of violations decreased nearly by 60%. Now, the vast majority of devices is set in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and soon large routes in Al Ain and Dafre will join them.
Umbrellas from the summer sun: new stock of municipality of Dubai. 18.07.17
Hot sunny weather of which inhabitants of a midland of Russia dream now, for the Emirates – severe daily reality. Unfortunately, for those people that have no individual transport or haven't used car-rental in Dubai, a strong heat – serious risk for health. Faints, dizziness’s, heart attacks – the most frequent consequences of stay in the sun in the afternoon. With a problem have decided to cope with the help of usual umbrellas. Within a Year of charity the municipality of Dubai has made the decision to distribute them on city streets to the citizens who are in the subway on beaches or in parks. The first thousand umbrellas will find the happy owners already in the next few days. The ordinary pedestrians and persons working at open space without roof over the head will become them.
Didn't learn to drive the car? Clean streets! 21.07.17
The drivers moving by the cars on trasses of the Emirates or who renting car in dubai will be able to see unusual cleaners of streets soon. It is the citizens who received punishment in the form of public works for driving of transport with gross violations of the existing rules. The unusual initiative of legislators gained full recognition in Abu Dhabi. Here already applied administrative measures in the form of forced cleaning of streets or filling of cars with fuel at local gas stations to five caught violators. Along with it them deprived of the rights and forced to pay the large penal sums in the budget. Photos of drivers at the time of performance of new labor duties by them are published in the local press as an instructive example.
Legislators are sure: the new sanction will become excellent replacement to imprisonment or a penalty, bringing much more benefit and influencing consciousness of dashing drivers. Now in Abu Dhabi it is created and actively the department dealing with issues of assignment of public works for breakers of rules of the movement works.
New rules of patrol of streets in Dubai: instead of the police officer – the up-to-date UAV/ 25.07.17
According to tourists, traffic in the Emirates is quite disciplined. However the police department of Dubai decided for itself that the perfection does not have a limit, and supervision of a situation on routes after all is necessary. The decision to replace normal police cars with UAVs of production of Singapore is for this purpose made. New devices are created state-of-the-art and possess the whole set of unique features. And soon owners of personal cars, and who hired a car in the UAE will be able to see them with own eyes.
In competence of new auto-police officers – facial recognition of people and license plate numbers, condition monitoring it is expensive, tracing of incidents and operational sending information to police department. The equipment is equipped with the cameras of the last generation, sensors and scanners with ease defining position of the machine and also – the satellite system of navigation. In process of expenditure of a charge the UAV is independently recharged and, if necessary, easily switches in a manual mode of control.
On trasses of Dubai – by the flying taxi. 28.07.17
Recently on the proving ground of civil aviation it was possible to observe a unique show – check of the flying taxi. The new vehicle of production of China proved to be at height in literal sense of this word, having made a voyage near the well-known skyscraper of Burdzh the Caliph and the building of Skydive Dubai. Parameters of flight were carefully fixed by specialists by means of the dash camera. 360 kg of weight, weed at the height of 3000 meters, 4 meters in length and width – the new flying car promises to offer new prospects in optimization of traffic in the Emirates.
The flying taxi – the answer to the statement of the World summit of the governments in Dubai in February of the current year. It contains the ambitious statement for the organization in the megalopolis of the best transport system which doesn't have analogs in the world. Experts claim that by 2030 the share of the flying taxi will make about 25%. Perhaps, acquisition of such car in property will be available only to local oil tycoons, and them who cheap car rental in Dubai, will be perhaps more real. Time will tell.
The taxi of Dubai – one of the cheapest in the world. 01.08.2017
Service prices in resort towns, as a rule, unpleasantly surprise even secure tourists. But from this rule there are exceptions inspiring optimism – for example, Dubai. The researches conducted in 80 cities of the world proved: the city surely takes the fifth place on the level of availability of the prices of the taxi from the airport to the central part of the resort. Such trip will cost guests of the UAE in the sum a little more than eight dollars. First place is won by Cairo, behind it available taxi services are ready to offer the Indian Mumbai, Tallinn and Tunisia. However the quality of transport and service in - the first two options raises serious doubts, unlike respectable cars and the trained personnel in the Emirates.
As for cost for journey kilometer, here Dubai takes the 19th place. Among his main competitors there are Paris, Melbourne, Sydney, London and Tokyo. Thus, if on arrival to the country you didn rent a car in the UAE, safely use the taxi – it is cheap. Especially as in the nearest future it will be possible to receive the whole limousine in the order, having ordered it through the application of Uber.
