Competitions open to all residents who travel using any of Dubai’s various public transport services

Dubai,UAE: Samsung Gulf Electronics and Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will mark the 9th annual Public Transport Day with exciting competitions. Starting on October 26 until 31 before the Public Transport Day on November 1, Samsung is organizing two fun contests for UAE commuters. Prizes include 100 units of Samsung Level U pro and a chance to have your sketch featured on Dubai’s ‘nol’ transportation smart card.

The integrated array of mass transit means in Dubai, which covers the metro, tram, public buses and water transport means, has become a key component of people’s mobility in various parts of the city. Dubai’s RTA organizes Public Transport Day on November 1 each year to highlight the role of the Emirate in supporting efforts towards improving the environment, achieving sustainable development, encouraging residents to use mass transit means, and improving passenger levels.

Our competitions for the Public Transport Day are designed to get commuters involved and make their daily commute more fun and engaging. We encourage everyone to take part in this initiative and support improving the environment.”
