Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched a food truck at Al Awir Bus Depot to offer meals to bus drivers and employees. The step aims to make staff happier through addressing their basic needs at the workplace, which will save them the time and hassles of searching for food outside their premises. Thus, it helps them to do their jobs in the best possible manner.
Abdullah Ibrahim Al Meer, Director of Drivers Affairs, Public Transport Agency, RTA said:
“As RTA is keen on selecting the best food vehicles, it set a string of technical standards conforming to the top global practices. Such stipulations are also compatible with the stipulations of the Dubai Municipality and the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) for the safety of both drivers and staff. We gave due consideration to the quality and variety of meals to suit various taste and purchase preferences. The service will be available 24/7 on three shifts to fit the nature of work."
Offering the food vehicle service at Al Awir Bus depot is the first stage of an idea that will cover other stations as long as the experiment proves successful in serving drivers and employees at various stations. The service will enable drivers and staff to deliver their tasks perfectly and bring happiness to them as part of RTA’s vision of “The world leader in seamless & sustainable mobility.”
