Abu Dhabi’s Department of Transport (DoT) has announced a soon-to-be-launched automated fare collection, offering public transport users a more convenient travel experience, Khaleej Times has reported. The new project, called ‘Hafilat’, is being launched under the Surface Transport Master Plan (STMP) DoT to provide world-class and convenient solutions to public transport users, the department said.
