The bus ticket costs Dh35 and the commuters can pay using their Masaar card.

In a social media post, the authority said they increased the routes on the Abu Dhabi line to meet the needs of the commuting public.

To further help the commuting public, Ajman's bus-on-demand (BOD) service is now back in operation after the service was suspended on June 4.

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.

The commuter simply has to specify his/her location and destination, and the AI-powered app then specifies the nearest point where he/she can take the bus.

Passengers pay Dh7 each through the app.If a customer is booking the service for more than one, Dh4 is charged for each additional person with a maximum of four people.
