Officials at the Roads and Transport Authority said on Monday that a trial of an e-scooter project is scheduled in Dubai next week.
The Roads and Transport Authority said five operators will participate in the race.
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council of Dubai, was briefed on the project during his visit to the new Al Ghubaiba bus station.
The Roads and Transport Authority said five operators will participate in the race. These companies include three global companies (Careem, Lime and Tier) and two local companies (Arnab and Skurrt) supported by SMEs in Dubai.
The Roads and Transport Authority will also start a trial run of scooters in five areas: Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Internet City, 2nd December Street, Al Raqqa and Jumeirah Lake Towers. These areas were selected according to specific criteria, such as population density, special developments, availability of public transport services, integrated infrastructure, and high traffic safety records.
