RTA Accepts Dubai Fitness Challenge With Viral Video Across Its Fleet

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) shared an adrenaline filled video performing a series of stunts across their means of transport to complete 30 minutes of exercise for the Dubai Fitness Challenge.

From RTA’s taxis to abras

Rather than taking his car to the office, an RTA employee opts for using public transportation, jumping and sprinting his way from Business Bay metro station to buses and taxis at Al Ghubhaiba bus station and the abras in Al Ras to make it to the RTA headquarters in only 30 minutes. Check it out!

Viewers warned not to imitate stunts from the viral video

RTA advises viewers not to emulate these stunts as a skilled Parkour Athlete performed them. Imitating these stunts can lead to injury and charges for legal liability. The warning reads “All stunts and tricks displayed in this video are performed by a professional Parkour Athlete in a controlled environment, under the supervision of safety experts. Do not attempt or imitate, or perform similar stunts, as they will cause injury and you will be faced with legal liability.”
