Dubai is the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with over 2.6 million inhabitants.
It is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country.
Since Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities in today's world, with a population growth of over 5% per year, providing an advanced transport network for the people of Dubai is a top priority on the government’s agenda.
Numerous initiatives have been taken to enhance the public transport facilities and improve roads across the emirate to make travel safer and smoother.
EXPO 2020 represents a further challenge for Dubai, since over 20 mio. visitors are expected.
RTA (Road and Transport Authority) is responsible for planning and providing the requirements of transport, roads & traffic in the Emirate of Dubai and is cooperating with the Dubai Future Accelerators to foster innovative companies in the field of transportation.
