Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Huawei Consumer Business Group have announced the launch of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s first digital nol card and nol Pay mobile app on Huawei AppGallery.
This collaboration is in line with the RTA’s plan to adopt advanced and innovative technologies into Dubai’s transport sector as part of the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
This was announced during a ceremony attended by Pablo Ning, president of Huawei Consumer Business Group in the Middle East and Africa, and Jerry Liu, CEO of Huawei in the UAE.
Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector of RTA said, “The new RTA nol Pay app works with Huawei Wallet to enable residents in the emirate to quickly pay for their public transport journeys – and any facility that uses nol cards – from their Huawei smartphones.”
“Users can download the app directly from Huawei AppGallery on their smartphones, create their ID using the app and begin using the service immediately to top up their digital nol cards and pay on-the-go through their phones. Huawei Wallet provides NFC technology support to nol Pay app,” he added.
