Dubai: Nol cardholders will soon be able to earn loyalty points every time they pay for services offered by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), it was announced on Wednesday.
The RTA unveiled the Loyalty Points programme for Nol card users, branded as (Nol+), at Gitex 2017.
The transport authority announced that the cards will be available to the public by the end of this year.
The programme involves registering positive points for Nol cardholders in respect of using them to pay for fares of public transport means, parking fees, entering public parks, light purchases, and visiting the Etihad Museum.
The move amounts to a recognition of the use of RTA’s most important payment means.
Khalid Al Awadhi, director of Automated Fare Collection Systems at RTA’s Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, said: “For the first time, Nol cardholders can earn loyalty points for using their cards in their day-to-day commuting on the metro, public buses, tram, and marine transport means, and payment for parking, visiting the Etihad Museum/public parks, and light purchases.
“The loyalty points programme aims to motivate RTA Nol cardholders to use their cards in all relevant payment transactions through converting these points into coupon vouchers offering free services in cafes, restaurants, entertainment centres etc. Thus, it renders benefiting from our services as a source of happiness for all community segments,” he added.
