Dubai is taking transport innovation to new heights with plans to develop a rail bus system, which travels on a bridge equipped with solar panels.

A double-track system that allows transport units to move quickly and efficiently within urban areas is also being planned.

On the sidelines of the Dubai International Project Management Forum (DIPMF), the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) signed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with two companies specialised in developing and manufacturing transport systems.

The agreements were inked with the UK-based Urban-Mass Company and RAIL BUS Inc. based in the US.

Floc Duo Rail

The electric-powered driverless system features double tracks that allow transportation units to move swiftly and efficiently within urban areas.

Rail Bus

The system features vehicles operating on a bridge fitted with solar panels. These panels harness solar energy to power the system, which offers the advantage of lower costs in comparison to similar mobility systems.
