Dubai’s RTA has selected four start-ups with new mobility solutions. Dubai is looking for mobility solutions to counter challenges in a post-COVID-19 world.
The programme aims to provide solutions to key challenges, including mobility services post-COVID-19 and community-based transport planning.
The selection criteria focused on the novelty of proposed solutions, compatibility with future trends, workability, effectivity, anticipated impact and value-addition.
“The selected companies will join a six-week in-residence programme in Dubai that will run from January 17 to February 25. Solutions selected through Phase II qualifiers will be subject to research, development and trial so that they can be ready for implementation,” according to RTA.
Mohammed Al Mudharreb, chair of the Executive Committee for Anticipating the Future and CEO of RTA’s Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, said: “The four start-ups that qualified for Phase II of DFA came from six shortlisted start-ups in the initial phase. The selection was made via virtual meetings that took place from November 1-25 last year. Submissions were received from 93 local and global start-ups.”
