Man jumps on Dubai cabs, buses to reach office on time

  • Dubai News

A man was caught in a video performing parkour stunts around town so he could reach his office on time.



The man starts his stunt from the Damac Properties (formerly Dubai Marina) metro station and alights at Al Ghubaiba station, where he jumps through cabs and buses.

Come to think of it – Jumping on the roof of buses or through the gate of Dubai Metro could get you into trouble…but there’s a catch!

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) accepted the fitness challenge of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, by using this parkour footage.

The video, which was shared by RTA on social media, shows a man performing parkour stunts. It is coupled with the caption ‘RTA accepts the Dubai Fitness Challenge 2018’.

Parkour is a discipline which involves going through a complex environment in the fastest and most efficient way possible. It doesn’t require any assistive equipment – only an individual’s body.

It involves running, swinging, vaulting, jumping, rolling and crawling. Usually practised in urban spaces, parkour is about seeing the surroundings in a new way and finding potential routes to take around the area.



The discipline was created by French actor and stuntman David Belle and was popularised by Belle’s appearance in the film District 13. Its practitioners are called traceurs, a French term which means ‘to hurry up’.
