Transport Agencies Launch New Dubai-Abu Dhabi Route

According to Ateeq Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Director of Operations, Public Transport Sector at the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC), including the airport in the E102 bus route is part of their “larger transport connectivity plans” for next year, Khaleej Times reported.

The Director shared that the new service is operated by the ITC, the Department of Transport (DoT) Abu Dhabi, and the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) Dubai. It runs on a frequency of one hour, and was conceived with the upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai in mind.

The E102 bus route will be operated based on demand, Al Mazrouei added. Instead of hourly intervals, it may even run every 30 minutes, as the need arises.

Moreover, new lines from Abu Dhabi will connect the Abu Dhabi International Airport to Ibn Battuta Bus Station and Expo 2020 in Dubai, the Director explained. These will include bus services starting from the Marina Mall, Madinat Zayed, the Abu Dhabi International Airport, and Al Ain.

Earlier this month, a new bus service from Abu Dhabi to Ajman was launched, as part of the transport agencies’ expansion plans. Those who are traveling from the capital to Fujairah will still need to pass through Dubai, although a direct Abu Dhabi-Fujairah route may be introduced in the future.
