Supporting the Dubai Government’s ongoing efforts to boost digital payments and to accelerate the transition towards a cashless economy, the Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has become the latest entity to make a move towards a cashless society.

RTA and Huawei Consumer Business Group announced the launch of the GCC’s first digital nol cards and nol Pay mobile app on Huawei AppGallery.

The nol Pay app will allows user to purchase tickets on all RTA’s transportation services, from Dubai Metro up to waterbus, Tram and more. They can also recharge their digital nol cards through the app directly.

“The new RTA nol Pay app works with Huawei Wallet to enable residents in the emirate to quickly pay for their public transport journeys – and any facility that uses nol cards – from their Huawei smartphones,” said Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector of RTA.

“Users can download the app directly from Huawei AppGallery on their smartphones, create their ID using the app and begin using the service immediately to top up their digital nol cards and pay on-the-go through their phones. Huawei Wallet provides NFC technology support to nol Pay app,” he added.

The collaboration is in line with the RTA’s plan to adopt advanced and innovative technologies into Dubai’s transport sector as part of the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
