Dubai and Abu Dhabi are also working to make their public transit systems more environmentally friendly, though oil is still a major part of the Emirati economy.

Dubai is seeking Singapore’s help to improve the Emirati city’s public transportation system. 

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority signed a memorandum of understanding today with Enterprise Singapore, which is part of the Asian city-state’s Ministry of Trade and Industry. Dubai will learn “best trading and investment practices of public transport and mobility” from its Singaporean counterparts, the Roads and Transport Authority said in a press release.
