The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is ready to deploy its crowd management team to assist an expected huge crowd that will be taking the free ride in the Dubai Metro, water taxis and public buses today, the Public Transport Day.
Divya, an Indian resident of Dubai was not aware of any wrongdoing, when she used her NOL card to pay for her bus trip. She even swiped her card twice; as she had not heard the confirming 'beep' that she was expecting to hear when she tried to check in the first time.
Bus commuters can now access a dedicated website that can help them plan the journey, explore different routes, buy the tickets as well as share their experience. The fully loaded interactive portal was launched recently and takes commuters on a virtual ride through the bus system in Dubai.
