Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed that 1,631,861 million riders used its public transport, shared mobility means and taxis during the the New Year’s Eve 2022.
"The project serves Al Quoz 2, between Al Khail Road and Meydan Road. It involves the construction of a network of main roads extending 16km along with associated infrastructure works," said Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer.
Al Tayer noted that the Remote Bus Performance Monitoring Centre had also contributed to reducing fuel consumption and faults by 5 to 10%. Moreover, the City Brain system is expected to increase the bus ridership by as much as 17%.
During the month of Ramadan, customer happiness centres will open from Monday to Thursday from 9:00 to 17:00, and on Friday from 9:00 to 14:00. RTA’s Head Office will operate as usual around the clock.

The newly constructed road has been widened from three to six lanes in the direction of Al Ain. The sector, which extends 8km, starts from Bu Kadra Junction to the junction of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road with Dubai-Al Ain Road.
Named DS1, the service will start commuting between Expo 2020 Metro Station and Dubai South as of May 19, 2022. It aims to improve the integration between public transport and urban planning in the emirate.
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently carried out two inspection operations relating to passenger transport activity, and fare evasion on public transport means.
Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer announced the start of trials and preparations of digital maps needed for deploying these vehicles by the end of this year. As such, Dubai will be the first city outside the USA to operate such vehicles.
