The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently added more selling and recharging outlets of the Unified Fare Collection cards (Nol cards) by adding City Group, Grand City Mall, and Lulu International Exchange LLC to the lineup of RTA-approved selling agents. The move stems from RTA's keenness on broadening the realm of its service offering to enable users of mass transit systems (comprising Dubai Metro, public buses, and the water bus) to use them, besides being used by the public to pay for the public parking fees in Dubai.
Yousef Mohammed Al Mudharreb, Director of Automated Fare Collection
at RTA Corporate Technical Support Services Sector, said: "It is quite
important to offer more selling outlets of Nol Cards in order to serve a
wider segment of public transport commuters, particularly with the
launch of the Dubai Metro Green Line on 9/9/2011; which has played a
crucial role in integrating the mass transit systems in Dubai, thereby
serving a large number of key districts and landmarks of the business
sector in the Emirate.
"To activate this Decision, the Automated Fare Collection Department
at RTA Corporate Technical Support Services Sector, opted to increase
the selling & recharging facilities of all types of Nol cards by
signing bilateral agreements with each of: Citi Group, Grand City Mall;
which are among the leading business entities in the UAE and have a wide
spectrum of selling outlets having as much as 120 opened outlets
including 15 recharging outlets at Citi Group Hypermarket, and 12
selling outlets, including 4 recharging outlets, at Grand City Mall, in
addition to 14 selling outlets at Lulu International Exchange.
"The new selling outlets will adhere to the same terms &
conditions applicable to other selling outlets operating since the
launch of the Nol card, including offering unified prices at all the new
and the existing outlets.
"The RTA is always seeking to beef-up the channels & outlets of
distributing its services & products in cooperation with a host of
government & semi-government entities as well as private
organizations to cater to the rising demand for its services by mass
transit users in Dubai Emirate. We would also like to commend the role
played by the outlets of Citi Group, Grand City Mall and Lulu
International Exchange spread all over the UAE,” said Al Mudharreb in a
