Here's another reason to become a avid reader.
Commuters stand to win two million nol Plus points from a competition launched by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) during the Reading Month.
RTA announced on Thursday that it had launched an update to its ‘Read with RTA’ app and was offering two million nol Plus points to riders of public transport. The RTA, in collaboration with Serco Middle East, will give away prizes this month to the most frequent users of ‘Read with RTA’ app and participants in reading activities via RTA’s social medial channels, as well as children taking part in virtual workshops.
RTA Dubai has also launched initiatives under the theme ‘My Family Reads’ aimed at promoting the culture of reading among RTA employees and their families.
Rowdah Al Mehrizi, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications at RTA’s Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, said: “RTA has released a new edition of Read with RTA app, which comes with more than 600 new knowledge contents such as bilingual (Arabic and English) online books, audiobooks, videos and articles. Surfers can upload all publications of the RTA, such as Al Masar magazine and Salama magazine. An online link was added to enable readers to read several newspapers and magazines. RTA will reward readers with two million nol Plus points, which renders reading a treasured benefit.”
The nol Plus system associated with nol cards saves riders money in the form of points that can be redeemed in free transportation aboard the RTA's mass transit means.
The points can also be used to pay for purchases in 12,000 approved outlets, as well as entry tickets to Etihad Museum and public parks across Dubai.
