Dubai Fountain: RTA expands abra service

The Roads and Transport Authority, RTA, has announced the expansion of the Abra service on Dubai Fountain Lake by launching the Burj Plaza Station, which will enable more visitors to view the Dubai Fountain shows.

Mansour Al Falasi, Director of Marine Transport, RTA Public Transport Agency, said, "Launching Burj Plaza Station for electric abras aims to attract more passengers to the service by providing a superb platform offering them a panoramic view of the fascinating shows of the Dubai Fountain Lake at Burj Khalifa. About 478 journeys have been made from the Burj Plaza Station since launch, serving around 1,565 passengers. Work is nearing completion on a new marine station to serve guests of The Palace Hotel, offering them access to a hassle-free viewing experience of the fountain shows."

"RTA Marine Transport Department always seeks to run initiatives aimed at impacting and orienting the culture of all community members towards using marine transit modes," he said.
