Emirates Transport wins international award for student trip system

The Grow with Public Transportaward in the Mena region was handed out to Emirates Transport at the International Association of Public Transport conference in Geneva.

Emirates Transport has received an award for its dual trip student transport system at an international conference.

The Grow with Public Transportaward in the Mena region was handed out to Emirates Transport at the International Association of Public Transport conference in Geneva.

The system allows the use of the same bus to transport both male and female students in the same school district, but in two separate trips.

The environmental and economic benefits include less time spent by students on the bus, a reduction in the number of school buses required and less traffic congestion during peak times.
