Dubai to roll out social distancing, warning signs on public transport

Dubai Roads and Transport Authority will this week start placing 170,000 stickers across various modes of transport to ensure that social distancing and safety measures are adhered to.

Dubai Government said the unified safety and etiquette signage will be in two colours - red indicating mandatory compliance to avoid violations and penalties, and yellow to caution against certain conducts and practices.

The signage also seeks to promote good practices such as wearing gloves, using sterilisers and handwashing.

The signage will be displayed at all entry and exit points of metro and bus stations as well as public transit means, taxis and public facilities.

The first is obligatory and comprises four icons, namely: No Sitting (on some seats of public transit means and facilities), Two Riders Only (in taxis and limos), Leave Safe Distance (in closed areas), and Wear Mask (in all places).

The second is educative and includes three icons: Use Gloves, Medical Santisers, and Wash Hands.

The signage will also be distributed at all key Dubai Government facilities and will be displayed on digital and advertising signs on roads and bridges, shopping malls, and social media platforms of various government departments.
