The abras also have better operational efficiency according to the RTA and are part of official efforts to improve marine transport means in the emirate.
We recently told you about the Aqua Pod, the world’s first floating kitchen with food delivery via speedboat, and this latest development from RTA only serves to further improve the Marina.
And with constantly improving transport around the UAE – including the impending Hyperloop – which will shuttle passengers between Dubai and Abu Dhabi within 12 minutes, getting around promises only to get easier.
Mansour Rahma Al Falasi, director of marine transport at the Roads and Transport Authority, told Gulf News, “Among other initiatives made for improving the marine transport service was the rejuvenation of Al Seef Marine Transport Station, following the redevelopment of the entire neighbourhood by Meraas.
“Broadening the scope of the marine transport network in the area is expected to attract additional passengers to these modes to commute from Al Seef station to other creek stations as there are plentiful tourist attractions and facilities along the creek.” From Dhs3.
