Dubai Metro is on the fast track to financial viability and is expected to break even in five years, while the bus system operated by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is expected to recover costs in 2016. This follows a massive rise in passenger numbers and savings in the operations of the mass transit system. The public transport system has cut Dh1.5 billion in costs, according to the RTA.
RTA has solid practices in cooperating and partnering with the private sector in constructing various infrastructure projects in roads sector (roads, bridges, tunnels, crossings), and different transport systems.
