Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) and Huawei Consumer Business Group have collectively announced the launch of the Gulf Cooperation Council’s first digital nol card and nol Pay mobile app on Huawei AppGallery. The collaboration aims at promoting the RTA’s plan to adopt advanced and innovative technologies into Dubai’s transport sector as part of the UAE Strategy for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. The latest announcement was made during a ceremony attended by Pablo Ning, president of Huawei Consumer Business Group in the Middle East and Africa, and Jerry Liu, CEO of Huawei in the UAE.
“The new RTA nol Pay app works with Huawei Wallet to enable residents in the emirate to quickly pay for their public transport journeys — and any facility that uses nol cards — from their Huawei smartphones”, said Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector of RTA, Dubai.
With the nol Pay app, users will have access to buying tickets on all of RTA’s transportation services, from Dubai Metro up to waterbus, Tram, and more.
