Abu Dhabi is getting more public buses.

More than 320 buses worth AED 473 million are set to join the capital's fleet by 2020.

The first phase will see 40 public minivans being introduced from October 11.

That's four days before four road tolls will be launched across Abu Dhabi city.

Authorities say it's part of a push to make public transport more convenient for residents and tourists.

They'll be located at Sheikh Zayed Bridge, Sheikh Khalifa Bridge, Mussafah Bridge and Al Maqta'a Bridge.
