Dubai: Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will on Monday open a Mini Bus Depot next to Etisalat Metro Station on the Green Line.
The new depot will house buses deployed on Route F07 and 367 instead of sending them to the bus depots at Al Awir, Al Khawaneej and Al Ruwayah. As such, it will improve the operational efficiency of these two routes by saving “dead kilometres” due to travelling to those depots.
The F07 route moves from Etisalat metro station and reaches the workers’ accommodation at Al Qusais, while the 367 route moves from Etisalat metro station and reaches High Bay of Dubai Silicon Oasis.
RTA is also introducing several improvements on other Dubai Bus routes including the launch of two metro feeder routes – F19A and F19B during off-peak times (10am to 4pm) at a service frequency of 30 minutes.
Moreover, the timings of Routes F24, F07, F18, and F22 will be improved. More journeys will be added in the morning to synchronise them with the revised timetables of the Green Line of the metro service starting at 5am in the direction of Creek Metro Station.
