The General Transport Corporation will commence the distribution of a bonus payment for 2012 to the beneficiaries, in addition to their annual entitlements.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA thanked Shaikh Mohammed for ordering the payment of the bonus to the owners of taxicab plate numbers, many of whom have limited incomes so that they may provide a decent living for their families.

He added that “the reward is one of the noble gestures frequently made by Shaikh Mohammed to help improve the living conditions of citizens, especially those of limited income.”
