All RTA staff and passengers in Dubai must adhere to the guidelines provided by the Government of Dubai and Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management. This includes wearing masks throughout the journey, practicing social distancing and avoiding cash payments. The RTA management must also enforce regular sterilisation efforts to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus which has now infected over 2.9 million people across the globe.
However, the Integrated Transport Committee in Abu Dhabi has clarified that parking will remain free in the state during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
