Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has introduced its electric abra service on the creek between Al Seef, Baniyas and Festival City stations for a more environment-friendly way to move around the Dubai Creek now. Riders will be able to enjoy the stunning skyline of Dubai and its beautiful beaches in the electric Abras while offering a fascinating sea cruise experience.
