  2. There is a specific gateway on the RTA website where you may pay penalties.
  3. Services for settling fines are also provided by RTA Customer Happiness Centers located across the city. The only thing you need is the fine number that you were given by RTA when it was issued.
  4. Self-service devices are available to bus passengers for the payment of penalties.
