Dubai RTA launches new ferry service



The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai launched a new service for the ferry — Ferry without Chairs or the Floating Hall in the emirate.

“The RTA attaches great importance to the maritime transport network in Dubai with the launch of a variety of enjoyable services that take the means of transport to another level and help attract the customers to either use it as a means of transportation or entertainment,” said Hussain Khansaheb, acting director of Marine Transportation at the Public Transport Agency.

As a new service, the RTA offered its users the option to remove the chairs of the “Dubai Ferry” boat to become like a floating hall, as it can also re-arrange the interior decoration in line with the desire of the user to be used for multiple purposes, such as a meeting hall or an Arab seating or round tables.

“The new service will be launched, which requires a reservation in advance from individuals, companies or hotels, from Al Ghubaiba Station or Marina Mall Station, as per the renter’s request, who is able to organize business meetings, weddings or any special occasions, especially that the Ferry can accommodate nearly 100 passengers,” Khansaheb added.

Khansaheb stressed that the main objective of this service is also to meet the needs of residents in Dubai and tourists and visitors by organizing their special occasions at the heart of the sea and at nominal prices compared to others, and navigate through the waves in order to spend a good time on board of the ferry.
