Dubai beats 14 cosmopolitan cities in public transport services



Dubai – A scientific study commissioned by Simon-Kucher & Partners Co. revealed that Dubai has outclassed 14 established metropolises in providing public transit means characterised by high-quality, durability, safety, speed, luxury, cleanliness, and on-time journeys.

Dubai mass transit systems also stood out in terms of the availability of passenger information and modern technologies such as the smart apps enabling public transport users to pre-plan their journeys in order to get to their respective destinations in a smooth, safe and express manner.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), expressed his delight with the findings of the study which proved the superiority of Dubai city to established metropolises some of which started developing their public transport systems more than a century ago.

‘The massive investments injected by the Dubai Government in the transport infrastructure proved both successful and effective. The spiraling growth of public transport ridership illustrates the evolution of the culture and attitudes towards using public transport by various spectrums of the community.

The RTA has taken quick and solid steps towards fulfilling the objectives it set since inception namely; the provision of an integrated roads and transport system that ensures smooth traffic flow, provides highest safety levels to all users, and realizes the multi-modal integration of public transport in the Emirate of Dubai,’ said Al Tayer.
