RTA replaces waterbuses in Dubai Marina with abras


Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has replaced several waterbuses in Dubai Marina with air-conditioned abras that are more efficient and convenient for passengers, RTA announced on Saturday.



According to Rahma Al Falasi, the director of marine transport for RTA’S Public Transport Agency, said that the move is part of the agency’s efforts to improve and expand marine transit options in the emirate.

“Among other initiatives made for improving the marine transport service was the rejuvenation of Al Seef Marine Transport Station,” he added.

“Broadening the scope of the marine transport network in the area is expected to attract additional passengers to these modes to commute from Al Seef Station to other Creek stations as there are plentiful tourist attractions and facilities along the Creek.”

Al Falasi added that the RTA’s marine transit modes are “vital” for the integration of public transport in Dubai, and form an important component of the emirate’s infrastructure, particularly in the wake of the opening of the Dubai Water Canal.



The RTA’s marine transit modes include abras of various kinds, water taxis and the Dubai Ferry.
