Two Dubai Metro link bus routes to launch on January 1


Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the launch of two new bus services to link up with the Metro's Route 2020 from January 1.

The first is Route F45, which starts from Al Furjan Metro Station and heads to Discovery Gardens, and runs at 20-minute frequency during peak times.

The second is Route F56. It starts at Dubai Internet City Station and travels to Al Khail Metro Station, every 15 minutes during peak hours.

Adel Shakeri, Director of Planning and Business Development at RTA’s Public Transport Agency, said the routes constitute an important addition for the integration of the bus service with Dubai Metro.

He added that "in parallel on the same date, RTA will discontinue two bus routes. The first is Route 85 from Dubai Internet City Metro Station to Discovery Gardens. The second is Route F42 from Ibn Battuta Metro Station to Discovery Gardens".
