Dubai waterbus privatisation

Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority is to privatise parts of its water transport provision, reported Emirates Business 24/7. Mohammed Obaid Al Mulla, the CEO of the Marine Transport Agency, said the private sector's involvement would improve services. Tenders offered on a build, operate and transfer basis will be launched next year for both ferry and waterbus services; the agency will also introduce a fleet of high-speed water taxis next October.
