Buses are considered one of the important, public transportation that saves money and comfort. A huge number of buses are available 24 hours all around the emirate of Dubai to serve people and help them get where they want. In this context, What’s On website introduced some reasons that might convince you start using the bus instead of the taxi, and here we introduce to six of them.
It’s much cheaper:
If you decided to take the bus, you are going to pay from 3 to 15 Dirhams only; a fee that is considered much lower than this you will pay for a taxi. e.g. if your fee was AED 20 in a bus, you were about to pay roughly AED 150 in a taxi!
Have some time reading or listening or music:
The bus trip is such a good opportunity you could use to do some good things, like reading or listening to the radio or to your favourite music.
They are “different” than in other countries:
Dubai has 170 double-deckers, 945 normal buses and 346 articulated people carriers across the city, all quiet, air conditioned, clean and safe. It worth noting that 551 of the bus stops at the city are air conditioned, and the RTA plans to install free WiFi at 100 one around town.
Easy to use:
The RTA website – Dubai-buses.com/ offers a comprehensive Journey Planner section, an interactive Maps section and also a full run down on the timings.
People in the city like them:
Being efficient, safe, cheap and reliable, people who use the bus in Dubai has been saying really good stuff about it and rate it as the best bus service they have ever used.
This because you can use your NOL card for both bus and metro to travel all over the UAE.
