Dubai pursues ambitious public transport targets

Oxford Business Group: "There are signs that the authority’s campaign is working. Public transport as a share of all travel in Dubai rose from 6% in 2006 to around 15% last year, the RTA said, putting the emirate on track to meet a target of 20% by 2020. The emirate is looking to boost the contribution further to 30% by 2030."

People abandoning luxury cars in Dubai

Car Keys: "Pictures of the cars, including that £1 million Enzo, have sparked fury on social media, with many assuming that the hyper-wealthy citizens of Dubai are so rich and so numb to the value of the things that they own that they simply leave the car when they’re bored and get another.

However, in truth one of the primary reasons that so many expensive luxury cars end up abandoned is due to Dubai’s struggle in the face of the effects of the global financial crisis, along with plunging oil prices."
