Essa Abdul Rahman Al Dossary, CEO of the Public Transport Agency, Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), called for more efforts towards propagating the culture of using public transport means among various community segments at a time where the RTA is striving to broaden and upgrade the package of services offered to taxi users in Dubai Emirate, as the taxi service supports the public transport sector as well as the tourist sector in the Emirate.
“We moved from five to seven zones, and the fare has largely gone down particularly for monthly Nol card subscribers and people living near labour camp areas on the side of Al Qusais. It remained unchanged for some and rose a little bit for a few.”
The signalling and safety systems for the long- awaited Green Line of Dubai Metro are now being tested as part of a trial run. A Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) spokesman said: "We have completed the train tracks on the Green Line and are doing trial runs with empty trains to test the line." He said the contractors were now focused on finishing stations on the line, and that work was proceeding at a good pace.
