Free ride for Nol cardholders

The third annual Public Transport Day will be celebrated with free transport for all holders of the public transport system access cards on November 1. Those with Nol cards will travel free on Thursday, on all public transport including the metro, public buses as well as the Water Bus.



Director of Traffic at RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency Hussain Al Banna said, the objective of the event was to attract the public and introduce them to the benefits of using public transport.

“We have prepared a number of events at the metro stations, Al Seef Road, Al Ghubaiba Bus Station and inside the RTA premises. The RTA has allocated a number of prizes for public quizzes, where winners will be awarded iPads, bikes and Nol cards in addition to a host of prizes that will be distributed free of charge to public transport users.”

A contest titled ‘Look for the Key’ will also be held, with commuters invited to search for one of the 10 keys located in the city’s metro stations that belong to 10 bikes. Another photography contest titled “Best Image of a Public Transport Means” where people can post their best public transport images on the RTA’s Facebook page, will reward the top three finishers with iPads.
