Dubai Media Office

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has taken a step towards cashless payments, launching the region's first digital nol card.

The move, in collaboration with Huawei Consumer Business Group, allows smartphone users to buy tickets for Dubai Metro, water buses, trams and more through nol Pay app and HUAWEI Wallet.

They can also recharge their digital nol cards through the app directly.

"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," explained Mohammed Al Mudharreb, CEO, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector of RTA.

The users can download the app directly from HUAWEI AppGallery then use their HUAWEI Wallet to top up their digital nol cards.
