RTA deploys new abra transport on Dubai Marina and Dubai Creek

Fancy cruising along the Dubai Marina to get a stel-lar view of the city? Or just looking for another mode of transport to work? These new abras will help out.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched five new abras along Dubai Creek and Dubai Marina, all to improve water transport services throughout the city.

The traditional boats can take up to 24 passengers, with three de-ploying this month (January) and the other two set to launch over the next few months.

“The new traditional abras are lighter in weight and compatible with the code required to ac-commodate people of determination,” said Director of Marine Transport at RTA Mohammed Abu Bakr Al Hashmi.

“The design of these abras enables transforming them into electric abras in line with RTA’s environmental sustainability plan.”

The new additions to the fleet are in response to the growing demand from residents of Dubai along with visitors for marine transport services.
