The RTA READ MORE initiative creates avenues for the city to fall in love with reading again. Encouraging commuters to pick up a book and read on the go, office goers to take a break from work and sink into a book and get children to expand their imagination through reading. And this is just the start.
Look out for more exciting initiatives over the next few months.Readmore
Let’s make travel time more interesting with a good book. We want our commuters to read more and rediscover the joys of reading while commuting. Libraries with an extensive selection of books from all genres will be set up in Metro stations. They will be placed conveniently in the passenger area next to the entry and exit points in the station. You can access the libraries, borrow books and return them easily when you make your metro trips.
Kickstarting reading at a young age and opening up the imagination of the new generation, the RTA Read More initiative also finds its way to schools, with creatively designed open kiosks placed within school libraries that give children easy access to all kinds of books.
If reading is not your cup of tea, you can also enjoy books by listening to them. Our audio books will be recorded in English, Arabic, Urdu, Malayalam and Tagalog. Choose your language and enjoy the books on your way to work, college or to the mall.
For the digitally savvy, our ebooks will be ready for download shortly. Choose a book, download it on your device and read it at your convenience.
