The Road And Transport Authority in Dubai (RTA) has just signed an agreement with Australian bus manufacturer BusTech Group, to develop and test eco-friendly and zero-emission electric buses in Dubai.

This announcement follows a number of environmentally friendly and sustainable initiatives introduced in Dubai.

The newest addition to the goal of achieving a net-zero carbon emissions by 2050, is this trial of fully electric buses in Dubai, for public transport use.

Free rides

According to the RTA website, the public will be able to ride on these on the trial buses for free,  with busses running along the popular route from La Mer to Al Sufouh.

There will also be several fun stops along the way such as Burj Al Arab, Wild Wadi, Dubai Offshore Sailing Club, as well as the Mercato Mall.
