The Public Transport Agency (PTA) of Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the suspension of the traditional payment system via paper tickets for bus services, Khaleej Times has reported. The old system will be replaced by the Unified Fare Collection System (Nol cards) in all inter-city bus services from and to Dubai except to Abu Dhabi, said the PTA. Launched in September 2009, more than five million Nol cards have been issued, with more than one million transactions executed through the multi-purpose uses of the card.
