Bus Service in Dubai

bus service Dubai

A typical bus stop in Dubai

Fully air-conditioned, spic and span, spotlessly clean, sparkling insides… This is the bus service in Dubai. Don’t you think it’s too good to be real ? But well, this is an evening in Dubai, supposed to be peak hour in any city of the world. And no, this was not a Friday, their usual holiday.

The bus fare is 2 Dirhams (their currency) for any distance you want to travel. All the buses and the bus stops are air conditioned. There is a route map inside the bus and at the bus stop as well.

One has to get in from the front door of a bus. Why ?

There is no conductor in the bus, the driver issues the tickets. Some seats are reserved for ladies but there is no restriction for them sitting elsewhere too.

I think this is one of the reasons to visit Dubai.

    For two dirhams and considering the heat in Dubai, I’d have thought that a service like that would be very popular.

  2. Ram,
    Hmm… Now I know what you want. You want me to post some more photos from inside the bus where you can see people sitting. 😀
    Shall happen.

    They are a bit shaky, taken from inside moving bus but will post some. 🙂

  3. Zhu,
    You are right. It looks so futuristic. You’ll have to wait anyway, the frequency is quite poor. 😛

    Mark,
    Well, Dubai is quite rich. The buses are not so popular, I think the main reason is the frequency. One has to wait around 30-45 minutes even to see a bus !

  4. The guy behind those bus shelters (Anup Jalan) is into Outdoor Advtg etc for a while and he got an award for this work.

    I would pass on the link to him, he should be happy to read that people are liking it. 🙂
