So far 70 buses have been repainted. But by the end of the first quarter of 2017, all the 186 buses will have the new colour scheme.

“All metro feeder buses will have a new colour scheme replicating the shape of the metro carriages. The step is aimed to make customers happier through adding colour & visual markings that help commuters readily identify metro feeder buses. This design has been widely applauded by public transport users, tourists and visitors descending on Dubai from all countries,” said Director of Maintenance & Services, Public Transport Agency, RTA, Abdullah Rashid Al Mazami

Having a more unified design will definitely help in communication especially to tourists as well as residents. This makes it easier for us to identify the mode of public transport of Dubai based on the color and design scheme, whether it be the train, bus, tram or water transport.
