Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is set to open a new public bus route on Tuesday and enhance the performance of other routes.
“The new metro feeder Route (F01) to be launched on Tuesday sets off from the Union Metro Station and passes through Al Baraha and Al Muteena districts,” said Adel Mohammed Shakri, Director of Planning and Business Development, RTA Public Transport Agency.
“The service on other routes will also be improved involving increasing the headway (service frequency) of Routes 365, 366 and E303; and reducing the headway of other routes namely: Routes 64A, 24, 27 and 300. The implementation of this step will start on Tuesday as a quick response to the needs of public transport riders and in line with the upswing witnessed by Dubai in various fields. The RTA has opted to take these two measures to improve the daily performance on these routes. The steps have been taken after elaborate field surveys following suggestions and feedback of public transport users in Dubai,” explained Shakri.
