Metro com­muters will have a chance to be part of a Guin­ness World Record at­tempt early to­mor­row when the most di­verse group of multi­na­tional rid­ers will hop on to a train at Eti­salat Metro sta­tion.

Part of the Roads and Trans­port Au­thor­ity’s (RTA) Pub­lic Trans­port Day cel­e­bra­tions, the at­tempted record is among a se­ries of ac­tiv­i­ties that will also see com­muters win­ning prizes worth Dh150,000.

The cel­e­bra­tions also mark RTA’s 13th an­niver­sary.

A cam­paign launched on Oc­to­ber 22 of­fered com­muters a chance to win, with each trip on any mass tran­sit sys­tem, triple the Loy­alty Points on Nol Plus. Five pub­lic trans­port rid­ers, in­clud­ing one per­son of de­ter­mi­na­tion, will be se­lected as win­ners of prizes amount­ing to Dh100,000. Five other pub­lic trans­port rid­ers from among RTA em­ploy­ees will stand to win prizes amount­ing to Dh50,000.

Com­muters can also take part in the Nol match­ing con­test, which in­volves two pub­lic trans­port users bear­ing Nol cards that to­gether com­plete an im­age of a gift. Each con­tes­tant has to search for the other.

The con­tes­tants can also search for the other half of their Nol gift im­age through Instagram by us­ing the hash­tag #WeMoveTo­gether. Once the im­age is com­pleted the par­tic­i­pants can call the RTA call cen­tre to claim their prizes.
