Free Nol cards worth Dh100k for Dubai’s Car Free Day
Commuters heading to work on the Metro will be given Gold and Silver Nol cards charged with different amounts
Nol cards worth Dh100, 000 will be given away for free to thousands of Dubai Metro users on February 4 to support the 6th Car-Free Day being celebrated by the Dubai Municipality.
Commuters heading to work on the Metro will be given Gold and Silver Nol cards charged with different amounts, a senior official told Khaleej Times on Wednesday.
Salem bin Mesmar, assistant director-general of Dubai Municipality for health, safety and environment monitoring sector, said teams of Dubai Municipality employees will be placed in Metro stations to distribute the cards that are sponsored by Emirates Islamic Bank.
Speaking after a press conference held to announce the details of this year’s Car Free Day, he said commuters will have to show their work ID to prove that they are using the public transport on the day of the event.
The Dubai Municipality has been giving free Nol cards to its employees who regularly use the Metro to work. However, this is the first time the civic body is giving away the same to general commuters to mark Car Free Day.
