nol cards to be accepted at attractions and museums across Dubai

It’s been a busy week at GITEX 2019 taking place in Dubai, and the RTA has been revealing plenty of updates to Dubai Taxi and how we use our nol cards.

First, news broke that the city’s contactless travel card, nol, will be going fully virtual – meaning you can use your Nol card via your smartphone – and now you’ll be able to use your Nol card to pay for entry fee to a number of the city’s museums.

The new partnership, announced by Dubai Media Office between the RTA and Dubai Museums Company, means your nol card will be usable in museums across the city, including The Dubai Museum, Etihad Museum, Al Shindagha Museum and more.

And it won’t stop there.

The RTA has said it plans on making the nol card the platform with which tourists and residents alike can access some of the city’s top attractions throughout the year. Work is ongoing to make it scalable depending on demand – and in the future it could become incorporated into wearable technology and biometrics, too.

“As part of nol strategy execution, RTA has designed a nol digital solution that extend the current capability of nol to provide seamless experience in transit and non-transit like tourist destinations,” said Abdulaziz Al Falahi, CEO of Corporate Technology Support Services Sector on behalf of the RTA. “The future idea is to have a single ticket, which will allow customers to visit major tourist attractions and use public transport,”
