The Supreme Committee for Strategic Planning, at Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), headed by Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), approved RTA’s revised strategic plan 2016-2020.

2The objectives of the strategic plan have been revised in keeping with Dubai Government’s drive, and RTA’s values have also been revised, namely, Corporate Reputation, Excellence and Success, Leadership and Teamwork, Happiness and Positive Energy, and Creativity and Innovation.

“RTA’s revised strategic plan is in line with the directives to render Dubai the smartest city worldwide. This concept depends on man as the mainstay of the community by offering distinctive and innovative services capable of bringing happiness to people.

“The updated strategic plan took into account the outcomes of the UAE national agenda 2021, Dubai Emirate Plan 2021, and Dubai Self-driving Transport Strategy aimed at making 25% of all transportation trips in Dubai self-driving by 2030,” said Al Tayer.

“The strategic goals have been divided into three main themes namely, Community, Transportation Systems and Internal Efficiency. The Community theme includes three goals.

“They are Smart Dubai, which aims to enhance communication, integration, and cooperation, manage information, improve and sustain solutions and smart government services, and figure out smart solutions for transport, roads and traffic.

“The second goal is Integrated Dubai, which aims to improve integration between transportation planning and urban planning, make roads and transportation systems friendly for all, and preserve national identity.

“The third goal is People Happiness, which aims at gaining the lead in bringing happiness to people, ensuring harmony and happiness with customers, and ensuring positive energy at work,” continued Al Tayer. More info
