Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is set to launch a new bus route for public buses in Dubai and improve the services of three others, starting September 9th.

The move aims to expand the internal bus network and step up the integration of mass transit means in the Emirate.

The new route, which is named SM1, starts from the Gold Souk Bus Station, passes along Al Khaleej Street and heads towards Souk Al Marfa at Deira Islands. The service will run every 60 minutes.

In the meantime, RTA is adjusting the path of Route (14), nearby Al Safa Stop, to cover the seaside section of the Business Bay Bus Station. It will also adjust the path of Route (F51) nearby the Dubai Investment Park Metro Station as well as the path of Route (F55) at Emaar South to cover additional residential areas.

RTA’s Public Transport Agency will make improvements on 11 bus routes namely: 5, 14, 88, 310, X64, F51, F46, F27, F12, DPR1 and C28 to match the timings of these journeys.
