DUBAI, UAE: Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has embarked on a collaboration with the Dubai Maritime Authority (DMA) at the Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC) to enhance RTA’s 360 Marine Transport Services.

This initiative involves integrating RTA’s Services with DMA’s System to enable the public to avail of services such as short-term berth rentals that allow private boats to dock temporarily at maritime stations without overnight stays.

This partnership was formalised through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the Executive Director of Dubai Maritime Authority Sheikh Dr. Saeed bin Ahmed bin Khalifa Al Maktoum and the CEO of Public Transport Agency, RTA Ahmed Hashim Bahrozyan.

The transport authority seeks to upgrade the licensing services for maritime transport means registered with the Dubai Maritime Authority by electronically linking with insurance companies under the RTA’s System.

Additionally, it aims to upgrade the licensing services for the crews of maritime vessels registered with the Dubai Maritime Authority by accessing eyesight test data through RTA’s system.

These initiatives are designed to streamline the interconnectivity between concerned departments, thus simplifying the access to customer data and information on registered marine transport means and providing the service to customers.
