The next time you board a public bus in Dubai, make ensure there’s enough credit on your Nol Card.

That’s the message from the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), which says non-payment of the correct fare is one of the most common offences committed by bus riders.

Other violations include failure to show the Nol card upon request, littering, accessing prohibited areas, sitting in non-designated areas, eating or drinking and resting feet on seats.

Nearly 740 offences were reported during a recent four-day inspection campaign targeting public buses and bus facilities.

The checks were carried by the RTA in partnership with Dubai Police.
