Two new bus routes are set to be introduced in Dubai, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said.
The first one, F27, is a metro link service shuttling between Al Jafiliya metro station and Al Satwa. The other new route, Route X64, is an express service commuting between Al Baraha Bus Station and Ras Al Khor. Buses will ply on both routes starting August 24.
The F27 route, which will support Route 32C, will be operational from Saturday to Thursday at a frequency of 15 to 30 minutes during peak hours. On Fridays, the service frequency will be 20 to 30 minutes. Route X64 will operate at a frequency of 20 minutes during peak hours, and offers a faster alternative to Routes 64 and 64A.
The RTA is also going to improve some bus routes starting August 24. This includes rerouting of Route F13 (Dubai Mall Metro Station- Dubai Mall) to pass through Al Asayel Road to cover additional developments. Route 97 (Al Qusais Bus Station - Jebel Ali Industrial Zone 7) will be rerouted to pass through the dedicated bus lane on Al Khail Road. Route 63E (Al Qusais Bus Station - Al Quoz Bus Station) will also be rerouted to pass through the dedicated bus lane on Al Khail Road.
On the same date, RTA will extend several bus routes. Route 8 will start from Al Baraha New Bus Station (instead of Gold Souq Bus Station) to Ibn Battuta Metro Station.
