The Rail Agency, Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), has held its yearly employees gathering, as part of its policy and plan aimed at mustering efforts and advancement. The event examined the achievements made by the Agency in 2012 and the key plans it seeks to implement in the forthcoming future.
Abdullah Al Madani, CEO of RTA Corporate Technical Support Services Sector, said: “The new exclusive card has a unique nature featuring the design of the UAE flag, and is being issued as a contribution from the RTA to the celebrations of the UAE National Day under the tutelage of the Federation and the prudent leadership of the country.”
RTA reminds the public that carrying alcoholic drinks is forbidden on the Metro, even if it is purchased at one of the Duty Free shops at the Dubai Airport. Carrying alcoholic drinks inside the public transport system is a violation of rules. This has always been the case, but it was time that the public needed to be reminded of this, says Road and Transport Authority (RTA) Dubai.
Abdul Mohsin Younes, CEO of RTA Strategy and Corporate Governance Sector said: “The RTA Strategic Planning Department studied the impact of the metro stations on the surrounding lands and properties in coordination with the Dubai Real Estate Regulatory Agency, or RERA, which provided the data about the rates of lands and properties in areas close or far from the metro stations.”
Roads and Transport Authority has begun investigation into robbery complaint by a passenger, who claimed he lost his iPhone while riding the Dubai Metro. According to Al Bayan newspaper, theft is becoming common on the Metro. However, a complaint broadcast on Al Bath Al Mubasher programme led to the RTA initiating quick action.
Here's what a bad day on the Dubai Metro could cost you: first, you doze off in the waiting area (Dh300); now you're late, so you make a run for the doors (Dh100); in doing so, you spill your cup of coffee (Dh100), causing a visible stain (Dh200). Total cost: Dh700 in fines plus the subway fare.
The man behind it all was His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and his vision today is called the Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). It's time to whip out those credit cards and shopping bags as Dubai is gearing up to celebrate a period of non-stop festivities for 32 days from January 20 to February 20, 2011. And its all about - shopping, winning and family entertainment.
