Be part of a world record tomorrow
On Public Transport Day, Dubai Metro plans to carry most diverse group of multinational riders
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.
