Dubai 3 January 2017: During the said holiday, the Dubai Metro lifted 1,288,316 riders, public buses served 722,572 riders, marine transport modes ferried 124,159 rides, and 53,234 riders used the Dubai Tram, while RTA’s taxicabs during the mentioned two days carried 1,098,592 riders.

The RTA is keen on maximising the happiness and satisfaction rating of all community segments including public transport users. It, therefore, seeks to provide top class transit means that are safe, convenient, reliable and fitted with the latest technological features ever used in the industry.

It is noteworthy that the ridership of RTA’s public transit means (metro, tram, buses and water transport means) is continuously on the up, thanks to the growing culture of using these modes amongst community members. It speaks volumes of the convenience and smooth mobility offered to public transport users moving to various destinations in and from the Emirate.
