Tracking destinations and planning bus journeys have been made easy with the new-look bus routes and maps being installed at all the bus stops in Dubai.

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has started displaying improved and easy to read bus routes, network maps and timetables at the bus stops and main bus stations across the emirate.

“Now bus commuters will find it easier to read the timetables, review the network and check the route maps with ease,” said Eisa Abdul Rahman Al Dossary, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the RTA’s Public Transport Agency (PTA)

The colour-coded new maps, he said, are part of the PTA’s efforts to improve the quality of bus services.

The maps will also include the single bus routes with the route number in different colours. The maps will display all public bus routes together with major landmarks falling within 500 metres of a bus stop on every route.

“Through these maps, the user can establish his or her whereabouts, and identify the routes serving a destination,” said Al Dossary.

This map is divided into three main sections. The first one represents the entire bus routes in Dubai, the second one shows the routes passing through the point of the bus stop being used by a commuter, and the third one describes the key geographical locations in the neighbourhood of the destination point of the user in the shape of 3D images.
