Taxis are easily available in Dubai, and can be hailed wherever available. Compared to most major cities, the taxis are quite reasonable, and follow a metre to calculate the fare. Many drivers understand and speak English, or communicate in Arabic, Urdu, Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Filipino and many other languages. The minimum starting fare in cabs is AED 10. From the airport, one can only take 8-seater taxis, and their starting fare is AED 20. One can also book cabs, which have a starting fare of AED 6. There is also a Dubai Taxi mobile app through which you can call for a cab. Apart from the RTA cabs, radio taxi company Uber is also operational in the city.
