Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has published an informational brochure listing offences and fines applicable for operators and passengers of marine transit modes in Dubai, namely the water taxi, water bus, abra and ferry.

1The offences code will take effect by the end of January.

“RTA is always keen on implementing several initiatives capable of enhancing public services, improving the security and safety, and conserving the environment,” said Abdullah Al Mahri, Director of Monitoring of Transport Activities, RTA’s Public Transport Agency.

“Issuing the Offence and Fines Code would assist the compliance of passengers and operators of marine transit modes with the regulations in place, which in turn would curb the number of offences reported. Statistics indicated that marine transport operators had committed 80 offences from May 1, 2015, until the end of September 2015,” he noted. More info
