All vehicles including taxis are subject to a toll of AED 4 when they pass through the toll gates in Dubai. Vehicle owners are required to buy salik tags which are available online and at petrol stations. After purchasing the salik tag, vehicle owners must stick them on the front shield of their car/bike. Check the salik balance from time to time by calling on 800-Salik (80072545) and re-charge it online. Read about additional top-up channels.
Passing through salik gates without the tag may attract fines. Moreover, in case of passing through Salik gate without sufficient balance in Salik tag car and not charging the card within 5 days, a fine will be levied on the vehicle.

From 2 January 2019, Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) and the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) will activate four tollgates on the following bridges leading into the city of Abu Dhabi:
A toll of AED 4 will be levied on every vehicle passing the gate during peak hours that have been identified to last from 7 to 9 am and from 5 to 7 pm from Saturday to Thursday.
