Ajman's bus-on-demand (BOD) service is back in operation, authorities announced on Friday. The service was suspended on June 4.

"We are pleased to inform you that the on-demand service has been resumed as of today. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation," Ajman Transport Authority said in a post on X.


With minibuses made available from 6am to 11pm, the Transport Authority's BOD service cuts waiting time for commuters and helps ease traffic congestion. Seats on the bus are booked through an app and its route is instantly determined based on service requests.
