Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has installed more than 100 solar-powered Nol card recharging machines across the emirate, increasing the number of machines to 178 in the city, with the move aimed at reducing power consumption in accordance with Dubai Supreme Council of Energy's strategy.

In a statement, RTA said the top-up machines had been installed at bus stations, including those near Al Qusais, International City, Mall of the Emirates, and Sahara Centre.

More than one million travellers used Nol cards in Dubai during H1 2019, with the system considered an important digital tool in RTA's portfolio to deploy smart services across the city. 

Director of transportation systems at RTA’s public transport agency, Khalid Al Awadi, said: “The installation of these systems will shorten the time taken in Nol card top-ups.

“Commuters can use their credit cards to top-up Nol cards online through RTA’s website and activate the credit through the existing machines.”
