Buses will now directly ply from the Union Metro Station, and pass across Al Baraha, Al Muteena areas. The Public Transport Agency at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) made the announcement on Sunday, stating that the new bus route is set to open on Tuesday.
"The new metro feeder Route (F01) will be launched on Tuesday and it sets off from the Union Metro Station and passes through Al Baraha and Al Muteena districts," said Adel Mohammed Shakri, Director of Planning and Business Development, RTA Public Transport Agency.
He added: "The service on other routes will also be improved involving increasing the headway (service frequency) of Routes 365, 366 and E303; and reducing the headway of routes 64A, 24, 27 and 300. The implementation of this step will start tomorrow as a quick response to the needs of public transport riders and in line with the upswing witnessed by Dubai in various fields."
Shakri revealed that the steps have been taken after elaborate field surveys following suggestions and feedback of public transport users in Dubai.
"The RTA is keen on expanding the reach of the public transport network to match the urban and demographic growth in the emirate. It considers public bus routes one of the strategic initiatives and key pillars of increasing the percentage of trips made through the public transport network," he said.
RTA's overall objective is to entice more community members to use public transport means in their daily mobility; which will have a positive impact on both the traffic movement and the cleaning of the environment.
"Obviously the more public transport riders we have, the less traffic congestions will be experienced by our city, let alone the lower number of accidents, higher traffic safety level, and the minimal environmental pollution generated by private cars," added Shakri.
