RTA launches two new bus routes to serve Global Village visitors.


Nov 06 2017

Starting from November 1, RTA’s Public Transport Agency is set to launch two new bus routes (Routes 102, 106) to cope up with the growing number of visitors to one of Dubai’s topmost attractions ‘Global Village’. The two routes are Route 102 from Rashidiya Metro Station heading directly to the Global Village, and Route (106) from Mall of the Emirates Station heading to the Global Village. To improve the route's service around the Global Village, RTA had re-operated Route 103 and Route 104. Route 103 starts from the Union metro station and heads to the Global Village via Al Rabat Street. Route 104 starts from Al Ghubaiba Station and heads to the Global Village via Al Jafiliya metro station. The launch of the two new routes (102) and (106) this year to serve visitors of the Global Village is a quick response to the needs of public transport riders. Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashimi, Director of Planning and Business Development, said, “RTA is keen on broadening and upgrading the public transport network to cope with the urbanisation and demographic growth in Dubai. Opening more public bus routes is part of the strategic initiatives and key pillars of raising the proportion of journeys made by public transit means. Attracting more community members to use public transport means in their daily travels will have positive impacts on the traffic movement and the environmental cleanliness.
