Bus On Demand Rta

The 14-seater Bus on Demand services has officially expanded to a new route in Dubai

If you’ve ever been stuck in Business Bay, you know that another public service option is more than welcome!

Following a month-long trial, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has officially expanded its ‘Bus on Demand’ service to Business Bay.

The decision is in response to the growing demand for the service which has helped strengthen the city’s mass transit network and ease congestion in vital areas.

The 14-seater minibuses operate on flexible schedules and timings, and can be booked through the ‘Dubai Bus on Demand’ smart application.

Drivers can communicate directly with commuters via the app to identify their nearest point within the areas currently covered by the service – Al Barsha, Al Nahda, Dubai Silicon Oasis and Business Bay.

As part of the RTA’s comprehensive field survey before introducing the Bus on Demand service, several criteria was looked at including comfort, punctuality, the on-demand nature of the service, accessibility to homes and mobility destinations, cost-effectiveness, and the environmental sustainability of the service.

The RTA also reviewed international practices in countries like Spain, Germany, the United States and Finland.
