The new map will make passenger mobility much easier and it is viewed as an integral part of the Master Bus Plan covering most of the urban areas in Dubai.

The map contains a list of various services on offer at the Public Transport Agency, which have been highlighted in distinctive colour codes.

The green line represents Express Bus Service, that is, buses which only stop at certain stations and not all of them. The blue line represents Airport Bus Service, and the black line indicates ordinary bus routes which cover most areas of the emirate of Dubai.

The golden line symbolises Emirates Express Buses, which link the emirate of Dubai with other emirates.

Mohammed Obaid Al Mulla, CEO of Public Transport Agency, stressed that the new map had been appreciated by the public as revealed from the opinion poll conducted by the Public Buses Department and Business Planning and Development Department which covered a wide spectrum of nationalities residing in Dubai. Bus drivers and bus station controllers were also covered in the poll.

All of them praised the design of the new maps and commended the user-friendliness in tracking and identifying various locations and areas in Dubai such as commercial centres, tourist destinations, public departments, companies, establishments and other key units.
