Ras Al Khaimah Transport Authority (RAKTA) announced a transport project which aims to encourage mass transport and offer recreational options, the Abra at Emirates creek.

Abras will play between four main stations: Corniche 1, Corniche 2, Hilton Garden Inn, and Manar Mall.

Esmaeel Hasan Al Blooshi, general manager of RAKTA, said abras are equipped with smart cameras that are powered by artificial intelligence. The cameras are linked to the smart control and monitoring centre to “ensure the highest levels of security and safety for users”.

“The cameras also monitor drivers' behaviour during operations,” the official said.

The abras, which are traditional boats made of wood, are operated by qualified and licensed drivers and have marine safety equipment and GPS electronic tracking systems.

Customers can purchase tickets at the marine transport stations.
