By Staff

The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) recently launched a new water bus line to shuttle between the Festival City Station and Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary

Baha Uddin Al Qudra, Director of Marine Transport at Public Transport Agency, said: “In a short cruise lasting about 30 minutes, the bus will slow down at certain locations to enable passengers take photos.”

This Water Bus service will start at 10am and 11am, continue at 2 pm and 3pm, and again at 4pm, 5pm and 6pm from Saturday to Thursday. On Fridays and official holidays, the service will run at 2 pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm and 6pm.

The fare is Dh25 per person in a round trip, and tickets will be issued onboard the Water Bus; which can also be chartered for those interested in having private trips.

The Water Bus was launched in 2007 to ferry passengers between Dubai Creek stations and is characterised by deluxe and roomy seats.
