All about Abu Dhabi's road tolls (Darb)

The Darb toll system is a new toll system in Abu Dhabi, which is came into effect on 1st July 2021.

Much like the Salik toll system in Dubai, the Darb toll system charges drivers for using certain roads in Abu Dhabi, by using electronic tags installed in cars, or a prepaid account, to automatically deduct toll charges when a car passes through one of the toll gates.

These toll gates are located on the Abu Dhabi-Dubai road, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Highway and Sheikh Zayed Bridge.

Cost: The cost of using the Darb toll system varies depending on the time of day and the day of the week, with higher charges during peak hours and lower charges during off-peak hours.

A toll of AED 4 will be levied on every vehicle passing the gate during peak hours that will be 7 am to 9 am and from 5 pm to 7 pm from Saturday to Thursday.

No fees will be levied during off-peak hours, and on Fridays and official holidays.

The authorities have mandated that there will be a maximum of 16AED charged per vehicle in a day with a maximum of 200AED charged per vehicle, per month.

You can learn more and register for Darb on the official DARB website.
