Buses in Dubai

Although public transport has traditionally been Dubai's unresolved issue, the government is currently focussing on improving the bus service.

At present, the buses that circulate are fairly new and the bus stops are air-conditioned cabins.

The bus network in Dubai is made up of 119 lines of which only 1 is nocturnal.


The cost per journey varies according to the distance traveled. You can consult the prices and different transport card options here.


Most buses run from 6 am to 12 pm except for some lines that start earlier.
