Saturday Snapshots: September 22
When the public bus transport service was launched in Abu Dhabi in 2008 by the Department of Transport, life in the city and outskirts was changed forever. In the past, those who didn’t own a car had to wait a long time for a taxi, which was then the only mode of public transport available. Nowadays, though, the bus has minimised the pressure and eased the costs of public transportation, offering people far greater flexibility in where they live and work. Today in Abu Dhabi, 650 buses operate on 95 routes and cater to 50 million people. Chief Photographer Abdul Rehman and Staff Photographer Ahmed Kutty take a look at the services.
