Top 3 mistakes that got hundreds of people fined at Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram


DUBAI – Hundreds of Dubai Metro and Dubai Tram rule breakers were caught this year, with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) revealing the top three violations that people committed.

According to RTA, the top violation was sitting in designated areas meant for specific commuter categories. The RTA said that 856 offences of this nature were recorded.

The second most common violation was non-payment of fare, with 107 people caught and fined.

The third most common violation was eating and drinking in prohibited areas, with 79 violators caught and fined.

Hasan Al Mutawa, Director of Rail Operations at RTA, said that inspection campaigns are ongoing to ensure that people comply with safety standards.

“These monitoring and inspection campaigns on the facilities and trains of the Dubai Metro and tram are not aimed at issuing tickets to violators. They rather stem from the RTA’s standing commitment to apply the top global practices for ensuring the safety of riders and the cleanliness of mass transit means,” he clarified. ICA/Expat Media
