Dubai's RTA deploys PPP to build 100 bus shelters
The first of the air-conditioned bus shelters were launched in February
Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced that it has developed 100 air-conditioned bus shelters across the emirate under a public-private partnership (PPP) programme.
The new bus shelters, the first of which were launched in February, cover more than 15 districts in Dubai.
Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of RTA's public transport agency, said end-user satisfaction for the smart shelters rose to 91% since the project's inauguration earlier this year.
"The number of different transactions done [through] the smart buses reached 25,000 till the end of mid-2016," he said, according to WAM.
"The underlying objective of these smart shelters is to upgrade public transport facilities and services through transforming them into smart elements."
