The Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi and the Road and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai have come together to launch the newest intercity route that will connect the industrial area of Mussafah with Ibn Battuta Mall bus station, while also stopping by the Abu Dhabi International Airport.
What a relief!
Ateeq Mohammed Al Mazrouei, director of operations, public transport sector at the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC), said “The service runs on a frequency of one hour. We made the suggestion to include the airport. It was done with the Expo 2020 in mind and as part of the cooperation between the emirates of Abu Dhabi and Dubai."
The frequency may change from running every hour to running every 30 minutes, as per demands.
Al Mazrouei also mentioned plans of connecting the capital with the Expo site by adding newer bus routes from Marina Mall, Madinat Zayed, and from Abu Dhabi International Airport to Ibn Battuta bus station and the 2020 site.
