Five operators will be involved in the run, the RTA said.

An e-scooter project is set to be trialled in Dubai next week, officials of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said on Monday.

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, was briefed on the project during his visit to the new Al Ghubaiba bus station.

Five operators will be involved in the run, the RTA said. These include three international companies (Careem, Lime, and Tier) and two local firms (Arnab and Skurrt) supported by Dubai SMEs.

The RTA will also start the trial run of scooters in five zones: Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Internet City, 2nd of December St, Al Rigga and Jumeirah Lake Towers. These zones have been selected according to specific criteria, such as population density, private developments, availability of public transport services, integrated infrastructure, and high traffic safety records.
