DUBAI, February 9, 2022

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) today (February 9) signed three agreements to boost public transport solutions and services on the sidelines of the Mena Transport Congress and Exhibition 2022.

The deal was signed by Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO of Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, RTA, and Omar Khoory, Nakheel Chief Hospitality and Assets Officer.
 
The agreement enables the use of the nol card at the Palm Monorail train stations and availing the monorail service at the Palm Jumeirah.
 
"The signing of the agreement with Nakheel signals our keenness to enhance the customer experience in using various means of transportation, by providing diverse and smart options for them in paying fares," said Al Mudharreb.
 
Khoory said Palm Monorail, the first and only mobility service of its kind in the Middle East, confirms Nakheel's commitment to enhancing mobility between major destinations on the Palm Jumeirah, besides providing convenient solutions to its customers.
