ITC, Lulu to sell card for bus services in Abu Dhabi

ABU DHABI, July 2, 2019

The Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) in Abu Dhabi and Lulu Group International signed an agreement to start selling Hafilat Cards in all Lulu shops in the Emirate starting from July 3 aiming to improve services offered to bus users.

The memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed by Mohammed Hamad Al Muhairi, the executive director of the Public Transport Sector at ITC and Abu Baker T P, regional director of Lulu Group.

To facilitate the delivery of services, Hafilat smart cards will be sold in Lulu shops across Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra Region at a cost of Dh40 ($10.8) (Dh10 for the card fee and AED 30 as a balance).

“The MoU symbolizes the cooperation between public and private sectors to facilitate the services offered to the public and meet their demands. This cooperation encourages the use of public transport modes because of the variety of bus services available in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi,” Al Muhairi stated.

Hafilat smart cards allow public buses users to pay for their commutes fares on board by deducting the fee from the users’ card balance after swiping the card when boarding and descending from the bus. Hafilat cards can be topped up with a maximum amount of Dh150. – TradeArabia News Service
