Flawlessly well-tuned transport system of Dubai pleases tourists and residents of the city not only with diversity, but also with a precise schedule and almost trouble-free operation. Numerous stops in all parts of the city will help you not to get lost and quickly navigate your own location. To the services of citizens and guests of the metropolis - buses, subways, numerous taxi services and inexpensive car rental, allowing you to travel not only in Dubai, but also far beyond its borders. And very soon another transport subtype will be added to them - the so-called passenger capsules, the photos of which have already been launched into the Internet space.
At first glance, it seems that the new technology has come to the real world from the pages of fantastic literature. First of all, it is distinguished by its suspended nature - cozy capsules for passengers will not move along ordinary roads, but along special metal communications on magnets in a “hanging” state, without touching the ground. Control will be carried out in an unmanned mode, which reduces the weight of the structure and eliminates the impact on its work from the human factor. Routes for the movement of the capsules will be laid in all popular areas of the city, allowing you to quickly reach the sea or shopping centers outside the city limits. The speed of the new transport will be about 160km / hour.
Information about the launch of a new type of transport was announced on June 9, 2019. Its supplier is skyTran, whose main specialization is unmanned mobile systems. The memorandum between the management of the company and the city authorities has already been signed, and very soon work will begin on the construction of a new highway, which has no analogues either in the country or in the entire Middle Eastern region.
According to the leadership of the Office for Roads and Transport of Dubai, a new high-tech project to launch a unique public transport has found its best implementation. Abdul Mohsin Ibrahim Younes, Director General of the Railway Agency, is confident that passenger capsules will serve the cause of the integration of public transport and will have a positive effect on the economic growth of the megalopolis. In addition, he pointed to the possibility of increasing the flow of investment and raising the standard of living of citizens through the new transport system.
A serious accident with numerous human victims occurred on Thursday, June 6th. A bus with tourists crashed into a road sign on the highway Mohammed bin Zayed. The vehicle had numbers of Oman and was engaged in transportation of travelers on an excursion route. As a result of an accident, 17 people died and six passengers were seriously injured. All victims are now in hospitals in Dubai, and their relatives notified of the incident.
The investigation of the incident will last longer than usual due to the complexity of restoring the picture of what happened and receiving testimony. Perhaps the bus was forced to brake urgently due to a violation committed by another traffic participant. Either a person without relevant management skills of a large passenger bus was brought to work. The version that the driver failed to pass a difficult part is not considered. At the given section of the road, no serious accidents have been recorded yet, and the incident of June 6 was the first major accident, which forced specialists to study in detail the peculiarities of traffic on the site. As soon as the exact cause of the incident is established, the results of the investigation will be published in local media, including the Internet.
Police officers remind residents and guests of the country, who have hired an economy class car in the UAE capital, Dubai, about the need to strictly adhere to traffic rules. This requirement is particularly relevant during peak hours and on weekends, when the tracks are full, and even a slight excess of speed can cause a major accident. In addition, parking in unauthorized places and sudden stops in the middle of the road are strictly prohibited.
Immediately after the accident, traffic on the road between Dubai and Muscat was suspended until the end of the investigation and the exact determination of the causes of the incident. In addition, it was done to ensure the safety of other road users, which could be prevented by a bus deployed in the middle of the road. However, given the busy traffic on this segment of the journey, the authorities decided to resume the movement of cars and buses in order to avoid traffic jams and overload on other parts of the intercity route.
An unexpected but very pleasant innovation was proposed a couple of years ago to Dubai motorists. A new pilot project of the so-called" smart confiscation» proposes to abandon the transportation of the offender to the penalty area. Instead, the car is left at the disposal of the owner, and in return-set it special sensors that track movement. If a motorist decides to bypass a police order and drive his vehicle during the sanction period, the relevant information will be immediately transmitted to the local police station with all the consequences.
The innovation has been working for two years, and today we can talk about its positive results. In a densely built-up metropolis, where the cost of a meter of land is estimated at a weight of gold, it is extremely irrational to allocate a significant area for cars of citizens-violators of traffic rules. Moreover, the fines in the Emirates are quite severe: it is enough to Park your car or car, for example, rented in the UAE, in the wrong place to lose the vehicle for a few days or weeks. Today, according to the current legislation, vehicles can be parked in the penalty area for up to 90 days. It is clear that such a platform will occupy a huge area. In addition, it is necessary to take care of the protection of the territory, the protection of the machine from the scorching sun, etc. it is much more rational to leave the car to the owner, but at the same time – to impose an effective ban on its operation.
The successful experience of Dubai could not be ignored, and from the first of June this year, similar rules are introduced in Abu Dhabi. The car of the violator can be left in the nearest Parking lot or in the garage, but with the obligatory condition of the sensor installation. An attempt to ride wills not pass-will have to pay a fine, and the car is guaranteed to move to the fine-the Parking lot of the police Department. Those who can not do without a vehicle offered an alternative – 15 dirhams for each day of sanctions. If the car is in the usual Parking lot of the police station, its "redemption" will cost 100 dirhams per day fine.
It seems strange to many that the United Arab Emirates, surprising the world with unique technical and construction projects, are poorly represented in the automotive market. Recently, this situation was corrected by the long-awaited premiere - all-wheel drive Al Reem. Its developers claim that by the end of the year, an Arab vehicle will appear on the regional market. And anyone who is planning to buy a car or use the services of rental new cars in the UAE capital Dubai will be able to personally evaluate what peaks the “modest” automotive industry has reached in the UAE.
The press conference dedicated to the release of the new SUV Al Reem gathered hundreds of journalists. Responding to their many questions, the leaders of Sandstorm Automotive Factory spoke about promising plans to “capture” the Middle East market. So, at the first stage, it is planned to produce only 13,000 cars, which, no doubt, will be quickly bought up by local amateur representative cars. A little later, the S24 pickup will be presented to a wide audience. Refusing the generally accepted tendency to shift production to the countries of Southeast Asia, where labor costs a penny, the management of Sandstorm Automotive Factory has decided to start production inside the country and give a good income to thousands of its specialists.
In her speech, the general director of Sandstorm Automotive Factory, Majida Al-Azazi, announced the imminent opening of the company's second automobile plant in the Emirates. She noted, not without pride, that her company is the foundation for the development of the country's automotive industry, which has not yet had time to declare itself on the world market. According to Al-Azazi, the success of the Emirates auto industry will quickly make it interesting for foreign investors and partners. In addition, it is planned to attract leading foreign designers and engineers to work. And, thanks to foreign financial revenues, it will be possible to open several more manufacturing enterprises.
Testing of Al Reem revealed excellent driving performance of the car, including in conditions of sand dunes and on tracks with unsatisfactory coating quality. The model is planned to be produced in the colors of six shades - silver, white and gold, traditional for the Emirates, as well as pearl, black and gray. For pickup S24 variety of colors is more modest - it will only be white, brown and black.
Dubai’s huge millionaire, burgeoning with all shades of gold under the scorching Arabian sun, never ceases to amaze tourists. Among other sights - a huge number of different-sized private and public transports, including - provided by the scheme of cheap rent a car in the UAE. However, what pleases guest’s causes a lot of trouble to the local police. And she can do nothing else but take tough measures to limit and optimize movement to some extent. Thus, among the latest regulations - a ban on the use of electric scooters on the sidewalks. It would seem that this requirement is obvious - to use the vehicle directly in the path of pedestrians is not only inconvenient, but also very dangerous. Nevertheless, such brave souls are, forcing citizens to dodge the rushing towards the transport - albeit light and maneuverable, but, nevertheless, carrying a threat to the lives and health of citizens.
Currently, representatives of the Office for Roads and Transport of Dubai declare that the ban on using scooters is temporary. However, the exact dates of the new ordinance are unknown. Experts say that they need to carefully examine the state of affairs, decide on security measures and adopt relevant legislation. Similar restrictions apply in a number of European countries, so their introduction did not cause much surprise among the people of Dubai.
The main reason for the ban on electric scooters was the lack of dedicated lanes. This situation forces owners to move on the sidewalk, causing inconvenience to pedestrians. In addition, a new type of mobile transport is gaining popularity. Today in Dubai, there are several active services offering scooters for short-term rent. Thus, their number in the city is constantly growing. Currently, some companies have already received a notification from the authorities about the suspension of activity for an indefinite period. And those services, who only filed documents for registration, are forced to abandon their intentions for several months before the adoption of relevant legislation.
The problem of the unsatisfactory state of the environment in the Emirates is being solved on a large scale and in several directions at once, including in the field of transport. Thousands of buses, private cars and car rented in the capital of the UAE, Dubai, moving daily through the streets of the country's megalopolises, make a serious contribution to environmental degradation. Therefore, local authorities strongly support the transition to safe vehicle models. The last novelty in this area was the exit on the streets of Abu Dhabi electric passenger bus.
The unique vehicle is a joint development of the world-famous Siemens concern and the local bus manufacturer Hafilat Industry. The exit of the vehicle on the route - the result of the efforts of the company Masdar from the UAE and the Department of Transport of Abu Dhabi. The first days of work on the route have already allowed experts to draw optimistic conclusions. Thus, in his speech, the head Yussef Baselayb of Masdar noted that the transition to environmentally friendly public transport will open a new page in the history of the Emirates road traffic. In addition, he outlined green transport solutions as a sign of the country's sustainable economic situation and its successful development.
It should be noted that the new electric bus was developed using unique technologies. The body and internal working units are designed taking into account the climatic features of the country - high temperature and humidity. The aluminum coating makes the vehicle resistant to moisture, and the water cooling system “takes care” of the long and trouble-free operation of the batteries. Comfortable temperature in the cabin maintains a modern air conditioning system.
Currently, an electric bus runs between Marina Mall, Abu Dhabi Central Bus Station and Masdar City, disembarking and taking passengers at six intermediate stops. The cabin capacity is 30 people, the length of the road on one charge is up to 150 km. In order to attract the attention of residents and guests of the Emirates, the authorities decided to make the journey on the route absolutely free for the next three months - until the end of March of the coming year.
United Arab Emirates retain the proud title of leader in terms of tourist flow from different countries of the world. It is therefore not surprising that the increasing number of taxi services, designed to reduce the burden on public transport and to please the tourists the opportunity to comfortably move around the metropolis. The office for roads and transport of Dubai (RTA) announced a new service, the launch of which is planned for spring 2019. The cooperation of the RTA and famous company Careem has reached a new level that will enhance the level of competition in the field of passenger transport, and, as consequence, - to make them better and safer.
In their joint report, Mattar al-Tayer, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, and Mudassir Sheikh, co-founder and General Director of Careem, spoke about the principles that are planned in the new taxi service. First of all, it should be noted that her appearance was another step in implementation of the program at turning Dubai into the "smartest" and most technological city in the world. In addition, the Association of state enterprises and the private carrier has no analogues in other countries, and new practical experience can be called unique. Is also important focus on the optimization of public transport, often experiencing congestion in the peak tourist season, holidays and weekends. Thus, if a tourist or a resident of Dubai, not having a personal car, for some reason was not able to use the service of renting of modern and reliable cars in the UAE, he will be offered a worthy alternative.
New taxi service will become part of the integrated mobile platform Dubai S hail, where in one single app contains all modes of transport. It can help to clarify the waiting time of the vehicle to select and plan the optimum route, clarify information about the driver and car. Such a solution would avoid long waiting transport and allow easy access to the desired point of the city.
According to the business project, the service will employ more than 10,800 cars. The first orders the new company will be ready to take in April 2019. Currently the process of developing a logo and finding a suitable name service. Once the decision on these matters will be taken, it will notify potential customers via the media.
The statistics for last year confirms relevance and demand of services of public transport in the Emirates. And all this is despite the developed service of services the premium of the taxi and the numerous companies rendering services in a segment of rent of a car in all territory of the UAE. So, during 2017 and buses more than 550 million people have used subway services. This indicator is 7 million more, than in 2016. Thus, loading of public transport continues, surely grow, forcing Management to take on roads the appropriate measures for optimization of the movement.
In terms of daily data, experts give number in 1,5mln the person – so many citizens and guests of the country every day resort to services of vehicles of general purpose. At the same time in the annual report of the director of road management the prevalence of the subway is noted – about 36% of all passengers fall to his share. It is slightly less – about 28% – at buses and the taxi. In terms of figures the number of passengers of the subway has made more than 200 million. Burjuman and Union, and the most demanded – the red line were the most loaded stations.
Breakdown on months has shown that most of all passengers were accepted in March and in December – respectively 49 and 48,8mln. person. Perhaps, it is connected with tourism which peak is the share of the beginning of winter and for February-March. Besides, during the winter season the Emirates traditionally become the world center of holding exhibitions and sales that also influences attendance of the country and consumer ability of local population. Those who have no individual transport prefer to go to shopping by the subway or the bus bringing citizens directly to doors of the shopping and exhibition centers. The same way dynamics of work of taxi services prestige class changes and car rental services - in the winter on these services demand sharply increases, gradually decreasing by summer.
In the report the CEO of local road management Al Tayer has reported that, since 2006, the share of public transport has increased from 6 up to today's 17 percent. In plans of the management – increase in this indicator up to 20% in the next two years and up to 30 percent by 2030.
Day without cars: when the ecology is more important than personal comfort. 26.01.18
The action of refusal of use of the individual transport for 24 hours periodically takes place in the different countries of the world. The Emirates didn't become an exception – the similar event will be held already for the ninth time here. Despite demand of private vehicles at movement on the megalopolis and its resort vicinities, such initiative doesn't cause discontent of citizens. On the contrary, she is even supported willingly by those who prefer own car or renting of the car in the UAE to public transport services or foot walks.
The new action urging local population to change on buses and bicycles is planned for February 4. Adzhman, Ras Al Khaimah and the city of Al Ain intend to take part in it Dubai. The management of local municipalities of road transportation already coordinated the main aspects of an action, having reached full mutual understanding. The population of objects – participants of the action is notified on the new project, and the authorities expect from motorists of positive reaction and all support. Moreover, announced several government and non-governmental departments the participation and also – the private companies anyway connected with roads and public transportation.
Main objective which is pursued by organizers of an action, - attempt to lower a negative impact of the huge cities on local ecology. Continuous monitoring of purity of air and water in the capitals and in resorts of the tourist centers of the Emirates shows sure deterioration in state of environment because of exhausts of thousands of cars which are daily coming out to roads of the country. Besides, for the purpose of an action – drawing attention of citizens to high-quality service of public transportation and its promoting. Also the role is played by the aspiration of the authorities to interest citizens in opportunities of a healthy lifestyle when the convenient salon of a car gives way to the bicycle or foot walks. Especially as for this purpose in the Emirates all conditions – from safe paths to magnificent park zones, so unusual against the background of the desert surrounding the country are created.
Following the results of 2017, more than 60 000 cars participated in the previous action. In new year experts expect significant increase in this indicator.
The United Arab Emirates which appeared on the world map less half a century continue to impress the whole world with the numerous records. And it concerns not only achievements in construction and ultramodern technical developments.
One of the latest news of the UAE – acquisition of a car number "2" for the fabulous sum of 3 million dollars. It is so much, more precisely, in 10 million equivalent dirhams, the local businessman Ahmed al-Marzouki who attended an auction of the Emirates Auction Company in Abu Dhabi laid out. Reporters of Khaleej Times interviewed him and he didn't express regret about the decision at all. Moreover, according to the 32-year-old millionaire, he is proud of the acquisition and connects the new number with memorable for the country date. On December 02, 1971 seven emirates integrated to the country – the UAE, and since that moment this day became a national holiday of the young state.
Ahmed al-Marzouki's purchase – not the only loud acquisition at last auction. For "more modest" the sum number 11 was acquired – its owner had to lay out for a desired novelty 6,5mln dirhams, or 1,5mln dollars. And here the 12-year-old school student became the owner of the prestigious number 1111. His father, the businessman Mohammed al-Mazrouei decided to give the successor a pleasant gift which cost is equivalent to 400 thousand dollars. Actually, similar expenditure doesn’t surprise. As well as around the world, prestigious car numbers serve as the distinctive sign of cars in the Emirates the VIP of persons and create their image. You will hardly see them on free sale or in services of renting a car in the UAE – "happy" number boards are quickly bought up by representatives of local business elite.

All collected sum is going to be spent for charity events. It should be noted that the auction for sale of car numbers is dated for 60-year anniversary of police of Abu Dhabi
Important news to owners of cars and those who are going to use services of rentjng a car in UAE.

During the day cars need to show all the best, what their producers allocated. The endurance, durability, stability on any route and safety – such of characteristics can show only the best of the best.
