As the first batch of Nol cards will soon be nearing its expiry date, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) called upon Nol card holders to replace such cards on time.

Every Nol card has a five-year validity. As the first Nol cards were issued on August 1st, 2009, the expiry date of this batch of cards will be on August 1st, 2014.

“We would wish to remind the public to pay attention to the expiry dates of various types of gold, silver and blue NOL cards regularly used in daily travels aboard public transit means, and obtain newly valid cards instead,” said Khalid Al Awadhi, Director of Automated Fare Collection at the RTA’s Corporate Technical Support Services Sector.

Although every Nol card has an issuance date, this date is not shown on the card itself and it is upon Nol card holders to be assured of the necessity to replace the card. This can be done by inserting the Nol card into any parking meter in Dubai, and if the expiry date is within one month the meter will inform the card holder and the new card must be applied for,” explain Khalid.
