RTA introduces NoL cards on inter-city buses, too

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai, has now activated the NoL cards (smart cards used to pay fares electronically in public transports) to be used in the inter-city buses, thereby permitting UAE residents and visitors to use the cards between the emirates.


The Director of Transportation Systems at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, Adel Shakri, said that RTA has just begun activating the use of NoL unified payment cards in public buses between Dubai and Sharjah. The agency is now making final preparations to implement this service on all other routes that connect Dubai with other emirates.


According to him, the inter-city public buses run 900 trips a day on 12 routes that link Dubai with other emirates and transport more than 35,000 passengers a day, while the seven routes connecting Dubai with Sharjah transports 17,000 passengers. The Dubai-Sharjah route accounts for nearly 50 percent of inter-city bus passengers.


The NoL smart cards enable passengers to pay fares electronically by swiping the card on reader machines on public buses, Dubai Metro, water taxis and in some parking areas.
