Dubai taxi users can now pay their fares via Nol, debit and credit cards, the Roads and Transport Authority of Dubai (RTA) announced on Wednesday.

The move came as a result of the signing of a partnership between the RTA and payment solutions provider Network International. The card payment system will be introduced in phases and is due to be fully installed in all taxis by mid 2015.

"This initiative would indisputably constitute an added value service to public transport commuting in general and to taxi riding in particular," said Dr. Yousef Al Ali, CEO of the RTA's Public Transport Agency.

"Nol Cards and bank credit and debit cards of various types from all around the world can be used to pay the taxi fares to smoothly and easily facilitate payment without the trouble of finding ATMs, in case cash is not in hand," Al Ali added.
