The fare of a single trip to the Global Village is Dhs10. RTA deploys deluxe coaches to run this service. These buses are characterised by exceptional comfort and high safety features in a way that renders passengers a great travel experience from and to the Global Village which adds to the enjoyment of individuals and families during the new tourist season.
