Dubai RTA has launched a daily bus service between Dubai and Muscat.
Launched in partnership with Mwasalat, Oman’s national transport company, there will be three trips daily between Dubai and Muscat.
The three daily buses will start at 7.30am, 3.30pm and 11pm. One way journey will last around six hours and costs Dh55, while the return ticket costs just Dh90.
With a capacity of 50 passengers, the luxury buses have latest tech features including free WiFi, adaptive cruise control and drive assist for additional safety.
Passengers can embark from three locations in Dubai including Abu Hail Metro Station, Dubai Airport Terminal 2 and Rashidiya Metro Station
In Oman the buses will have eleven stops on the way to Muscat including Shinas, Sohar, Barka, Muscat Airport and Athiba Bus Stations in Muscat. The buses will stop at these stops on the way back as well.
Tickets can initially be bought only over the counter and in the next stage online ticketing system and nol payment will also be available.
The Dubai-Muscat bus service by Oman’s Mwasalat has been running for several years with three daily buses.
However, Ahmad Behroozian, CEO of RTA’s Public Transport Agency said the new joint offering will add value to existing services with new buses and more stops.
