Abu Dhabi Airport to the City: Transfers and Taxi
Transfers from Abu Dhabi Airport to the City
Over 300 days of sunshine annually, interesting cultural sites, and luxury attractions - just a
few of the reasons to visit Abu Dhabi City.
Getting there is hassle-free if you plan your trip ahead. The best way is to book an Abu Dhabi airport transfer to the city. Choose your car from over 10 options available on the Kiwitaxi website, make your payment online, and you’re good to go. Your assigned driver will meet you personally, assist with your luggage and get you to your hotel. A waiting time of one-hour is included. Traveling with children? Be sure to book a child seat.
The cost of the transfer starts from 42 USD. The journey lasts about 20 minutes.
Taxi from Abu Dhabi Airport to the City
It will cost about 20 USD to get a taxi. There are plenty of taxis picking up passengers at the air hub. However, they are often not sufficient to handle the high number of tourists. As a result, you will likely have to wait for a long time before you can get a cab.
Note that there are two types of cabs: the black 6-seater Mercedes Vitos are luxury cabs available at Terminals 1 and 3, while the silver and yellow Toyota Camry metered cabs are parked at Terminal 2. It is possible to pay by cash or by credit card. Try to have the exact amount when paying cash; at times, drivers are unable to find change for large bills.
Public Transport from Abu Dhabi Airport to the City
Bus service: A1 bus is available for 1 euro. You can find these buses outside Terminals 1 and 3, and outside Terminal 2, as well as at the Cargo Building and the Police Complex. The buses come every 30–40 minutes and are available 24 hours every day. The buses transport passengers to the bus station at the Old Fish Market, passing the Bus Stand at Muroor and Street 11. The trip takes approximately 45 minutes but it may be longer at times when there is heavy traffic.
You will need to either take another cab or walk to your destination after getting off the bus. On the other hand, the Kiwitaxi service will take you straight to your destination, so you will have energy for shopping, visiting restaurants, historic sites and other attractions.
