Join Car Pooling in Dubai

You can car pool in Dubai, as long as you meet certain criteria set by RTA, which has created a website called Sharekni (Arabic for ‘share with me’). The RTA clearly specifies that this initiative is only meant to reduce overall traffic congestion and anyone using carpooling for picking up random strangers or for other profit motives will be fined. However, RTA does allow a mutual understanding between the carpool for sharing petrol and car maintenance expenses.

All car drivers are now eligible to take up to 4 other passengers in their car, while commuting. Registration is free and is valid for 6 months, after which you can renew the registration free of cost. For passengers wishing to find a carpool driver who may be commuting in the same direction, they can also register their names on Sharekni for drivers to find them.

 
To register as a driver: (You must know your driving license & car-plate number)
1. Go to www.sharekni.ae and register as new user.
2. Enter all details including email, contacts and create a username and password. After agreeing to terms & conditions, you will be asked to login to your email address and click the link.
3. Continue with registration and fill in personal, location and driver/passenger preference details. Also enter your driving license & car-plate number.
4. You have now registered as a driver and will receive a confirmation from the RTA. Login with your username and search for passengers with mutual commute and add them to your preferences. Remember to keep the RTA confirmation printout in your car and show to RTA/Dubai Police official in case of random checks.

To register as a passenger:
1. Go to www.sharekni.ae and register as new user.
2. Enter all details including email, contacts and create a username and password. After agreeing to terms & conditions, you will be asked to login to your email address and click the link.
3. Continue with registration and fill in personal, location and passenger preference details.
4. You have now registered as a passenger and will receive an SMS confirmation. If any carpool driver searches the Sharekni database and finds your commute destination & timing matching, they could contact you to carpool.
