Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has unveiled a unique initiative to reward students who use public transport to go to their schools.

Students were given laptops as a show of appreciation.

"This initiative is part of RTA’s standing commitment to encourage various segments of the community, such as the youth and students, to use mass transit means like the metro, tram, buses and marine transit means in their daily commute across Dubai," said Rowdah Al Mehrizi, Director of Marketing and Corporate Communication, Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector, RTA.

The RTA also offers a 50% discount on blue Nol cards for students to encourage them to use public transport in the Emirate.

The initiative was designed with retailers Noon, HP, and Keolis-MHI as well.
