Virtual Nol Cards revealed at Dubai’s GITEX Tech 2019

Pay for public transport, parking fees, shopping and more using your smartphones

Virtual Nol Cards revealed at Dubai’s GITEX Tech 2019

If that Nol card is taking up too much space in your wallet, not to worry, as RTA has revealed a brand-new virtual Nol card for Dubai to use.

Revealed this week at GITEX Tech 2019, the initiative aims to make transactions smoother for public transport, along with parking fees, shopping at retail outlets and refuelling stations.

The feature lets smartphone users tap to pay fares for all modes of transport in Dubai, including metro, bus, tram and marine transport services.

“We are keen to familiarise the public with this initiative for buying the virtual Nol card and saving it in their mobile phones where they can top-up the card directly from their credit cards, which are saved in their phones,” said Director of Automated Fare Collection at RTA Mohammed Al Khayat.

RTA plans to roll out the Virtual Nol card, adding all existing Nol card functions next year, just in time for Dubai’s Expo 2020.

Al Khayat added: “This initiative will boost the government drive of ranking Dubai as the smartest city in the world, and contribute to realising a host of RTA’s strategic goals: Smart Dubai, People Happiness and Asset Sustainability (namely green economy and paperless government).”

RTA’s Nol card has plenty of features, and to find out how to get discounts using it, along with offers at restaurants and beyond, find out right here.
