Dubai Maritime City Authority Allocates New Public Transport Marine Navigation Routes in Dubai

June 9, 2013, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: In line with Dubai's Maritime Sector Strategy (MSS) and the ongoing efforts to regulate marine traffic flow in response to the fast-emerging developments, Dubai Maritime City Authority (DMCA), the government authority charged with regulating, coordinating and supervising all aspects of the maritime sector in Dubai, has announced the allocation of marine public transport navigation routes along the coastline of the emirate, in collaboration with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai. 

The initiative is part of the joint commitment from DMCA and RTA to regulate the marine public transport sector which continues to see a high rate of usage across different social segments. Dubai's marine transit means comprising abras, Dubai Ferry, water buses and water taxis together ferried about 13 million passengers last year. 

Amer Ali, Executive Director, Dubai Maritime City Authority, said: “Allocating marine navigation routes complements Dubai's Maritime Sector Strategy aimed at developing, organizing and promoting the industry to position the emirate as a first-class international maritime hub. Our cooperation with the RTA is particularly crucial in allocating the marine public transport navigation routes, which will facilitate maritime activities and help promote maritime services in Dubai.”

“Our partnership with RTA is based on a common vision to streamline marine traffic flow and maintain the highest standards of maritime safety and integration among the different means of marine public transport in Dubai,” added Ali. 

Dr. Yousef Al Ali, CEO, RTA Public Transport Agency, said: “Marine public transport is increasingly being used by residents, nationals and tourists, as it offers high levels of flexibility, convenience and cost efficiency, and especially since it passes near major residential and tourist areas, hotels, spas and maritime sports clubs along Dubai's coastline. Accordingly, the new initiative significantly contributes to promoting maritime security and safety while regulating marine traffic flow, in line with the common goals of RTA and DMCA to create a secure and modern maritime industry that is able to drive economic development under the directives and vision of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.” 

Ali Al Dabbous, Executive Director of Operations, Dubai Maritime City Authority, concluded: “DMCA remains steadfast in its commitment to cooperate with industry-related government and non-government entities. We will continue to launch awareness campaigns, initiatives and strategies to boost the competitiveness in the maritime sector and therefore achieve sustainable growth while underlining Dubai's pivotal role in the regional and international maritime industry.”
