Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport nominations date extended
Dubai: The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has extended the date to receive nominations for the Dubai Award for Sustainable Transport (DAST) up to November 30.
The RTA has invited government, semi-government and private organisations and companies as well as academicians and researchers to take part in the second edition of the award.
Dr Khalid Al Zahid, Chairman of the DAST, said the higher committee of the award decided to extend the date by one more month in order to enable larger participation from public and private entities as well as scholars and researchers.
"Through launching this award, the RTA is seeking to achieve a number of targets that include educating and encouraging individuals and community organisations to play a proactive and constructive role in supporting the RTA to meet its objectives in upgrading the infrastructure of public transport," said Al Zahid.
"This initiative is a crucial step in leveraging the participation of the business community in the public and private organisations to join the RTA's efforts towards integration of multi-modal public transport in Dubai," Al Zahid said.
Get behind sustainable transport and push.
