RTA to resume four bus services connecting Global Village


Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will restart the operation of the four bus routes that serve Global Village.

The bus services will resume from the start of its new season on October 25.

The four routes are: Route 102 from Rashidiya Metro Station, 103 from Union Metro Station, 104 from Al Ghubaiba Bus Station, and 106 from Mall of Emirates Metro Station.

"We will ensure the implementation of preventive health measures onboard public buses and at stations to safeguard against the spread of COVID-19 amongst riders, drivers and staff at stations," said Ahmed Hashim Bahrozyan, CEO of the RTA's Public Transport Agency.

"This time we will be using deluxe Volvo coaches featuring high comfort and safety levels that will add more pleasure to the journey to and from Global Village during the new tourist season," he added.

The RTA has also approved a plan to operate three electric Abras inside Global Village. The service has been highly popular with visitors over the past 10 seasons.

"We are now putting the final touches towards the launch of the Silver Jubilee season of the Global Village. The comfort and safety of our guests and employees remain our top priority. We look forward to offering everyone an exceptional season by all standards," said Bader Anwahi, Chief Executive Officer, Global Village.
