The Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA) has introduced payment service by nol cards at more than 1000 selected retail outlets in Dubai. The payments will be mediated via a local payment platform operated by Mercury Payments Services LLC of the Network International. 

“The service is now available in more than 1,000 retail outlets across Dubai. Users of nol card in Dubai are now able to make quick and easy payments for purchases using their existing cards at POS terminals located at leading retailers across Dubai where the nol cardholders simply tap the card on the terminal similar to how they access the transit system. The network of retailers accepting nol cards is projected to exceed 5,000 by the end of this year,” said Abdulla Al Madani, CEO of RTA’s corporate technology support services sector.

He added that this initiative is an important step towards realising RTA's objectives making nol card users in Dubai happy by utilising the card for various services. This initiative is in line with the Smart City initiative.

“Enabling public from all social segments to use nol cards to meet their retail payment’s needs is aligned with RTA’s strategic goal No. 3, which is ‘People Happiness.’ RTA has always sought the best methods to make people in Dubai happy including citizens, residents, tourists and visitors, by providing them with safer, sophisticated, secure and faster solutions that enhance and make their lives happy, easier and comfortable. To meet this goal, RTA continues to collaborate with internationally reputed organisations,” Al Madani added.
