FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The Public Transport Agency has been selected as the first RTA agency to use the international standards of assets management, thanks to the high quality and sophisticated technologies featuring RTA buses qualifying them to rank among the best worldwide.

Mattar Al Tayer, RTA Chairman of the Board and Executive Director, received the PAS 55 Certificate from Rashid Sharqawi, Managing Director of SGS (Middle East & North Africa) in the presence of Abdullah Al Madani, CEO of RTA Corporate Technical Support Services Sector; Eisa Abdul Rahman Al Dosari, CEO of Public Transport Agency; and Udai Al Deesi, Director of Assets and 
Properties Management.

Al Tayer expressed his delight in seeing the RTA obtaining this international certification, which he considers as a result of the ongoing efforts made by the RTA since 2008 in implementing RTA’s assets management system, which culminate in incorporating Assets Management in RTA’s strategic goals of its 2009 - 2013 Plan.

“RTA has spent more than 80 per cent of its budget over the last few years in owning and upgrading assets and properties relating to roads, bridges, tunnels, metro, buses, taxis, marine transit modes and others.

In view of the importance of these assets, a department dedicated to assets and properties management was established with the aim of sustaining these assets and drawing up plans to preserve them in future, particularly under the prevailing testing economic conditions which prompt all parties to adopt creative thinking in a bid to increase the efficiency and ensure optimal utilisation of all properties,” said Al Tayer.
