Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has taken a significant step towards the development of innovative transportation systems by signing two memoranda of understanding (MoUs) during the Dubai International Project Management Forum (DIPMF).
The first MoU focuses on exploring the potential development of the Floc Duo Rail system, a double-track system designed to facilitate swift and efficient transportation. The second MoU delves into the possibility of creating a rail bus system operating on a bridge equipped with solar panels, generating the required electricity for its operation.
These agreements were inked with two specialized companies in transportation system development and zero-emission mass transportation solutions—Urban-Mass Company based in the UK and RAIL BUS Inc. based in the US.
Abdul Mohsen Kalbat, CEO of the Rail Agency, RTA, expressed the strategic importance of these MoUs, emphasizing RTA's commitment to identifying and adopting sophisticated and advanced practices in transportation systems. The "Floc Duo Rail" system, characterized by double tracks and electric-powered, driverless units, aims to provide efficient transportation within urban areas, adjusting unit length based on peak periods.
The second innovative transportation system, proposed by Urban Mass, involves vehicles operating on a bridge equipped with solar panels, harnessing solar energy to power the system. This design, with its contemporary approach, is expected to offer cost advantages over similar transportation systems.
Ricky Sandhu, Founder, and CEO of Urban Mass, highlighted the significance of introducing the Floc Duo Rail system in Dubai, emphasizing its role in reducing emissions and providing efficient transportation options.
Hatim Ibrahim, CEO of Rail Bus Inc., sees the collaboration with RTA as a milestone towards pioneering sustainable transportation solutions in Dubai. The MoU reflects a shared vision to revolutionize urban transportation through cutting-edge, eco-friendly technologies, contributing to Dubai's smart city vision and sustainable urban development commitment.
