Dubai Public Transport
Dubai public transport and Dubai busses are operated by the Dubai Municipality Transport Section.
The Dubai Municipality operates Dubai bussen on around 60 different bus routes which transport passengers to all main commercial and residentials areas of Dubai. It should come to no suprise that around 150.000 people ride the bus in Dubai daily.
Not all locations in Dubai can be reached by the Dubai public transport system which is why the Dubai bus service is actively being expanded by local Dubai authorities under the leadershop of the Dubai Municipality Transport Section.
Dubai Bus Timetable
Dubai bus passengers as well as visiting tourists have voiced concern over the poor quality of the Dubai bus timetables and the lack of the timetables even being displayed properly along the various bus stops.
Dubai Central Bus Station
The central bus station in Deira is located near the famous Dubai gold souk. If you are looking for the central bus station in Bur Dubai then you can find it near the large Plaza Cinema complex which is situated on Al Ghubaiba road. Unlike the Dubai airport bus service, the regular Dubai bus service does not operate on a 24 hour basis. The busses in Dubai start running at 06:00 am and the last bus leaves at 23:00 pm.
Bus Ticket Prices in Dubai
The Dubai public transport network is very cheap to use. Dubai bus tickets can be purchased from the bus station or from the bus driver and cost between 1 and 3 Dhs. The price of the Dubai bus ticket depends on the destination that you will be travelling to. Please do take enough small change with you when riding a Dubai bus as the driver normally is unable to give any money back.
United Arab Emirates Bus Service
If you are planning to travel to others Emirates or distant regions of Dubai then you can definitely consider taking the bus. Normally busses leave from both the central bus station in Deira as well as the central bus station in Bur Dubai. The busses that operate these routes are all modern and comforable and the bus tickets are incredibly cheap. A bus ticket to Hatta from Dubai for example costs only around 7 Dhs.
The other United Arab Emirates which include Abu Dhabi and Ajman can best be reached by using the excellent minibus service which is provided by the Dubai Transport Corporation.
Oddly enough passangers leaving Dubai to other destinations can only enjoy the service of the Dubai transport corporation.Passengers wanting to return back to Dubai are unable to take one of these minibusses and are forced to find another way to return back to Dubai.
