Dubai takes further steps to improve public bus services

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is taking further measures to improve the operational efficiency of public buses.

A Mini Bus Depot will open near the Etisalat Metro Station (Green Line) on Monday.

It will house buses deployed on Routes F07 and 367, instead of sending them to the depots at Al Awir, Al Khawaneej and Al Ruwayah.

The move will improve the operational efficiency of these two routes.

The RTA is also launching two metro feeder routes (F19A and F19B) during off-peak hours (from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm) with a service frequency of 30 minutes.

Moreover, the timings of Routes F24, F07, F18 and F22 will be revised.

More trips will be added in the morning to synchronise them with the revised timetables of the Metro Green Line, starting at 5:00 am in the direction of Creek Metro Station.
