Three new bus routes launched in Dubai
RTA’s Public Transport Agency in Dubai is set to open three new bus routes starting from September 1.
“Launching the three routes from the start of September is a quick response to the needs of mass transit users,” said Adel Mohammed Shakri, Director of Planning & Business Development of RTA’s Public Transport Agency.
“The first of the three new routes is Route (F24), a metro station feeder service, which starts from Al Qusais Industrial Area and heads to the Stadium Metro Station before passing by Al Qusais Bus Depot, the backside of Sahara Mall in Sharjah, Enoc petrol station at Nahda 1, the New Medical Centre and other places.”
“The second is Route (81), which starts from the Dubai Mall and heads to the Mall of the Emirates before passing through Umm Suqeim Municipal Centre, Umm Suqeim Park, Wild Wadi and other localities.
“The third is Route (X25), which starts from Karama Bus Station and heads towards the Head Office of the Dubai Silicon Oasis, Academic City, and Dubai Outsource Zone before passing by Centre Point Shopping Mall, Oud Metha Bus Stop near the metro station, Umm Al Romool and others,” explained Shakri.
“The Public Transport Agency has also upgraded the performance of other bus routes in Dubai namely Route (64A) which has been modified to better serve residents of Samari at Ras Al Khor, Route (43) which has been modified to better serve residents of Umm Al Romool near RTA Head Office, and Route (F29), the metro feeder service, which has been extended to serve Centrium Tower at IMPZ. The RTA has also made some improvements on the path of Route (99) to better serve the re-opened street at Jebel Ali Free Zone. Other routes which have also been improved are E101, E307 and E400, where the service frequency of these routes has been improved, thanks to the growing demand during peak hours. Moreover, the service timing of Route (53) has been extended up to 12.30 am (past midnight), and the Route (F10) feeding the metro station will be operational on Friday morning,” he said.
