A passenger has to pay more if he travels in more zones. </li></ul><ul><li>Commuters have to pay only once to complete their journey whether they use the Metro or buses or both to reach their destination but there is a certain time limit to complete their journey. </li></ul>Unified Fare Structure for Mass Transport Modes
  16. 22. <ul><li>With the launch of Dubai Metro, RTA has introduced Unified Electronic Fare Card (UAFC) known as &quot;Nol Card&quot; (an Arabic word meaning &quot;fare&quot; or &quot;cost of using transport&quot;) which is an electronic &quot;pay-as-you-go&quot; system. </li></ul><ul><li>There are four types of Cards </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Gold </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Silver </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Orange </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Red (Single Journey Ticket) </li></ul></ul></ul>Nol Card
