Dubai: Commuters can now track all public transport buses and Dubai metro trains live on the mobile phones through the Roads and Transport Authority’s (RTA) Wojhati app, a senior official told Gulf News.
Highlighting the authority’s innovative solutions that are on display at the Future Transport Museum at RTA’s headquarters, Adel Shakeri, director of Transportation Systems, said that providing real-time information is key to helping commuters plan their trips better.
“We are constantly working on upgrading our systems and bring in innovative solutions for the convenience of commuters. The latest upgrade to Wojhati app is one such effort. We have added live tracking of buses and metro so that commuters can plan their journey better,” said Shakeri.
He added that the feature will particularly help tourists find buses on different routes, nearest stations and next bus to a particular destination.
“Commuters can track all buses live, for now only on the android phones, and can see what are the available options for a particular destination. People can also track their metro trips both while travelling on the train as well as outside it. This helps people know when the next train or bus is any time of the day,” said Shakeri.
