Dubai: Finally, a bus route from Ibn Battuta Metro Station to Abu Dhabi will be started following constant calls from the public who had to go to faraway stations like Al Ghubaiba on the way to or from the capital.

The Public Transport Agency of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) also inaugurated nine new internal bus routes within Dubai “to boost the bus transit network and keep up with the rising demand for mass transit means in general and public buses in particular.”

According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of RTA Public Transport Agency, Eisa Abdul Rahman Al Dosari, “The new routes will start off trips from various stations within Dubai and the tenth route that will be kicked off is the Ibn Battuta Metro Station in Dubai that would head towards Abu Dhabi Central Bus Station and vice versa.”

Others are: Route No. 83 starts at Al Ghubaiba Bus Station and runs up to Nakheel Metro Station while passing through several Metro stations including Al Fahidi (1), Al Fahidi (2), and subsidiary power station of the Dubai Internet City among others.
