Connectivity is one of the many important aspects of a progressive society. When you see that issues such as traffic congestion and road accidents are being systematically dealt with, you know that the government is doing everything within its capacity to provide timely and efficient solutions.
At the start of the year, we have seen how the government has activated a number of routes to promote and support the use of public transportation within the country. And this should be a good thing because not only are the residents enjoying cheaper fares, but the government is also visibly strengthening its infrastructure and transport sectors, which are all important components of a healthy society.

According to the Integrated Transport Centre, the new service falls under its programme dedicated to boost the involvement of various stakeholders in the UAE to enhance the level of services offered to the public, boost the public transport network, and make traveling within and between emirates much easier.
