While many people who live in and hold a job in Abu Dhabi drive to work in their own car, there are alternatives.
If you don’t yet have a car or are averse to driving, taxis are the best and easiest way to get around Abu Dhabi. Unlike some other cities around the world, most of Abu Dhabi’s taxis are metered and quite reasonable for short trips. If a longer trip is in order, there are special shared taxis or mini-buses that go to different destinations. From Abu Dhabi to Dubai, for example, you can expect to pay approximately Dhs 150.
If taxis and mini-buses aren't comfortable enough, the City of Abu Dhabi has a modern fleet of air-conditioned buses that are inexpensive (AED 6 per person) and generally on time. Bus routes to Baniyas, Habashan and Al Ain are usually busy and fares rarely go above AED 6 per person.
Widely available, car rentals are a great alternative to hailing taxis. While they cost a little more, the freedom to go where you want is invaluable. Bring along your passport and international driving license to seal the deal. Ask your rental agency for maps of the area to get your bearings.
