April 09, 2020

Dubai has chosen Fime to ensure seamless interoperability of its unified smart ticketing scheme.

Fime has been chosen by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to support the growth and expansion of its Nol Card unified transportation network. Fime provides third-party test authority services and test lab management on behalf of RTA. As such, it ensures the independent integration, interoperability and certification testing to operators participating in the scheme.

This network enables the public to access all urban transportation, make payments and redeem loyalty points with a contactless smartcard. FIME is enabling stakeholders to successfully define, design, develop, validate, and launch new products and services while ensuring the continuation of today’s frictionless ticketing experience. Transport operators, system integrators, solution providers, card and terminal manufacturers, banks and any other entity joining the Nol scheme can now streamline their integration into Dubai’s smart city initiative.

Automated infrastructure and innovative technologies are central to our strategy, but you cannot reach for the future without also safeguarding the present. Fime is fundamental to both.
Fime’s experts, automated tools and efficient certification processes can now support every part of the current network, and those seeking to join it successfully. This is a partnership that promises great things for the future of transport in Dubai.
Mohammed Al Khayat
Automated Collection System Director at RTA
Dubai’s vision for urban transportation is truly inspiring. RTA’s commitment to a frictionless travel experience, regardless of the transport mode, puts them at the forefront of technological development and innovation. And with the addition of loyalty points, and other initiatives in the pipeline, the value proposition for travelers continues to grow. It is a pleasure to work with a partner that recognizes that relying on a third party test authority services is an enabler for innovation .
