English

A university student project in Dubai is developing a social networking app that lets people chat and play games with fellow transport users.

Waselni (Arabic for ‘connect me’) is being developed by students from the Dubai branch of the University of Wollongong.

The app, currently a prototype, would also allow users to view public transport routes, get discounts on tickets, and view transport times.

The hope is that the Facebook-inspired project will one day be adopted by the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
