Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has carried out 353 inspections on bus rental facilities in Dubai. The campaign aimed to detect any use of rental buses in activities other than the licensed ones, besides verifying the compliance with the technical standards set for this type of buses.
“The campaign covered Al Qusais, Hor Al Anz, Naif, and Dubai Mall car park and resulted in 42 offences. Violations were mainly related to the use of rental buses in activities other than the designated purposes, which is a breach of the applicable rules and legislation,” said Mohammed Nabhan, Director of Licensing Activities Monitoring, Licensing Agency, RTA.
“The campaign aimed to verify the compliance of bus rental facilities with the issued permits and check their validities. It also checked the technical specifications set for those buses such as seats, security & safety procedures, tyres, deployment of drivers licensed for these types of buses, and whether buses used belong to renters among other elements.
“The campaign, which is coordinated between the Licensing and Public Transport Agencies, is part of an annual plan to regulate and control the activity of this sector, which is a key component of transport systems in Dubai. Through these campaigns, RTA seeks to realise its vision to become The World Leader in Seamless & Sustainable Mobility,” added Nabhan.
