Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has made an important announcement. RTA has cancelled a bus route and changed several others. RTA announced that the Dubai’s Bus Route C07 in Deira and Bur Dubai will no longer be available from March 10. It will be replaced with two new routes.
Route 5 will be introduced from Abu Hail Metro Station to Al Khaleej Street (opposite of Gold Souq Bus Station) via Union Metro Station and Baniyas Street, while Route 6 will operate between Al Ghubaiba Bus Station and the Dubai Healthcare City via the newly opened dedicated bus lane of Khalid Bin Waleed Street and Oud Metha Bus Station. Route 5 in Deira and Route 6 in Bur Dubai will include all the stops previously served by the cancelled Route C07. RTA has also changed several other bus routes.
Here are the changed routes:
>> Route 28, which starts from Dubai Mall and ends at Lamcy Plaza, will now be terminating at the newly constructed Oud Metha Bus Station.
