One of the seven emirates in UAE, Ajman, has officially reduced taxi fares in the city after fuel prices were dropped all across the country, with new prices coming into effect today.
In this regard, Ajman Transport took to Twitter and stated that the taxi fares have been dropped by 2 fils, with new prices coming down to AED 1.82 per kilometer. The move will provide significant relief to daily commuters who have been waiting for good news.
Although the petrol prices have been lowered in the entire country, other emirates such as Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah have not announced a decrease in taxi fares so far. It is expected that they will do so in the next few days.
