Customers using iPhones can process payment of several fees in a quick and safe environment

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has launched Apple Pay feature enabling customers using iPhones to process the payment of several fees in a quick and safe environment via RTA Dubai app.

The RTA has thus become one of the first government departments in the Emirate to use this technology.

Mohammed Al Khayatt, director of Smart Services, Corporate Technology Support Services Sector, RTA, said: “It is now possible for RTA Dubai app users to use Apple Pay feature of their iPhones to pay the fees of several RTA services in a secure and personalized environment by just a tap of a finger. This service becomes operational through adding credit cards, debit cards or prepaid cards to the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch or Mac devices to pay for: NOL card top-up, recharging parking account, renewal of vehicle registration, renewal of driving license, replacing a lost driving license, and fines.”

Al Khayatt expressed RTA keenness to introduce various smart payment features to its smart payment channels and offer for clients. The step is poised to raise customers’ satisfaction; which ranks among the top priorities of the RTA. It contributes to the Dubai Government’s Smart City initiative and RTA’s strategic goals (Smart Dubai) and (People Happiness).
