DUBAI, 19th May, 2022 (WAM) -- Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) intends to launch a promotional initiative to encourage public transport riders to use marine transport means. The initiative, which is in collaboration and the support of Al Habtoor City (member of Al Habtoor Group), aims to honour the most frequent marine transport commuters. The initiative will be launched this June and will continue for three months.
"We thank Al Habtoor Group for supporting this initiative to encourage commuters to use RTA’s marine transport means namely the ferry, the water bus and the water taxi," said Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashimi, Director of Marine Transport, Public Transport Agency, RTA.
"RTA will conduct weekly draws for the most frequent marine transport riders. Winners will be rewarded with admission tickets to La Perle at Al Habtoor City," he added.
Marine transport means are part of RTA’s core services. They are particularly appealing to tourists, as riders will savour the picturesque views and the iconic landmarks of the city during their journeys in Dubai, besides the smooth and enjoyable rides.
RTA’s marine transport means had been designed by renowned boat manufacturers at top global standards. They are fitted with safety and security means and feature designated spaces for people of determination as well as accessibility for bikes and scooters to encourage flexible mobility.
