The Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA) has announced you can now use your nol card to pay for various services and goods in 1,000 retail outlets across the city.

The move comes as an attempt to improve the happiness and satisfaction among nol card users in Dubai.

Speaking on the initiative, the CEO of RTA’s Corporate Technology Support Services Sector Abdulla Al Madani said: “RTA has always sought the best methods to make people in Dubai happy by providing them with safer, sophisticated, secure and faster solutions that enhance and make their lives happy, easier and comfortable.”

He added: “The service is now available in more than 1,000 retail outlets across Dubai. Users of nol card in Dubai are now able to make quick and easy payments for purchases using their existing cards at POS terminals located at leading retailers across Dubai.”

He explains that all cardholders need to do is tap on the card reader which will then scan the card and deduct the fee accordingly.

The number of retailers accepting said form of payment is set to increase to 5,000 by the end of this year.

The nifty, time-saving initiative falls in line with the Dubai’s Smart City plan.

If you’re unfamiliar with it, the city’s Smart Plan aims to make Dubai one of the world’s smartest cities by providing the latest technology required to make it easier for people to fully benefit from the wide range of services they use on a daily basis. 

“The roll-out of this solution will indisputably further Dubai’s ambition to be the world’s smartest city within 3 years by harnessing the latest technologies and most advanced methods for realizing this objective,” Al Madani said.
