AbdulRahman Al Jaziri, Director of Markets Department, said that the move was based on the directives of Qassim Sultan, Director-General of Dubai Municipality.

He said that it is also in line with the vision and mission of the civic body, which is keen on having a constant and active interaction with its customers.

Mr Al Jaziri said the facility was arranged in coordination with the Public Transport Department as a free mode of transport for the workers to travel from their accommodation to the shops in the market. He said the customers of the market would also be transported free of cost from one end of the market to the other. Two buses will be used for this purpose, which will be plying from 3am to 11pm.

Commenting on the regular Public Transport services to the market, Najeeb Al Zarouni, Head of Planning and Marketing Office in the Public Transport Department, said that two buses have been deployed from the city to the market and back. These routes operate service from 6am and end by 11pm.

Route No. 61 operates from Al Ghubaibah to the Vegetable Market plying through Khalid bin Waleed Road, Naturalisation and Residency Department, Country Club and Ras Al Khor Customs. Route No. 64 starts from Gold Souk Bus Station and goes to the Vegetable Market through Hor Al Anz and Dubai International Airport.
