RTA reports 3300 violations in passenger transport activities in 100 spots

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently launched a wide-scale inspection campaign covering passenger transport activities in more than 100 spots across Dubai. The campaign is part of RTA’s keenness to verify the compliance of riders, drivers and public transport means with the governing rules and regulations, and bring it in line with the top global standards.

“The campaign covered more than 100 spots in Dubai and resulted in 3303 offences. The list was topped by 1459 offences against bus riders most of which were due to not paying the fare, followed by 1412 offences against taxi drivers most of which were due to carrying extra passengers more than allowed. Additionally, 105 offences were reported against rented buses, 100 offences were filed for illegal transporting of passengers, and 96 offences were made against limo drivers. The remaining offences were related to school buses, Abras and the use of nol cards,” said Saeed Al Baluchi, Director of Passenger Transport Activities Monitoring, Public Transport Agency, RTA.

“These campaigns are part of year-round plans to uphold the compliance with mobility rules, monitor the conduct of passengers and drivers as well as the compliance of transit means with the set standards. The overall objective is to maintain the established civilised practices for which Dubai is famed, and realise RTA’s vision to become The World Leader in Seamless & Sustainable Mobility,” he added.
