How to get a Taxi in Sharjah

Although different private Sharjah taxi companies run throughout the city, the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) monitors all of their operations. The easiest way to get a cab is to call the dedicated Sharjah taxi number on +971 600 52 52 52. The RTA will process your request and let the local companies know, so the first available taxi can come and pick you up.

Unlike many other major cities, you can’t simply hail a taxi in the street in Sharjah, you will need to use one of the special gadgets placed around the city. These gadgets have a button and a small screen and will alert a nearby taxi to come and pick you up. To request a taxi, you simply push the button and then the number of the closest taxi and their arrival time will appear on the screen. These gadgets can be found outside shopping malls, tourist attractions, transport hubs and police stations.

If you’re a woman and wish to request a ladies-only taxi in Sharjah, you can call the women’s Sharjah taxi number on +971 600 52 52 52 for this service.
