The bus service will run from Dubai to Muscat three times a day, with the full journey taking up to six hours. Route 201 will start off from Abu Hail Bus Station at 7.30am, 3.30pm and 11pm. It will then stop by Airport Terminal 2, and Rashidiya Bus Station to pick up passengers.

Every bus will offer free WiFi, and will accommodate up to 50 passengers. The best part of this service is its price – a one-way trip will cost just AED 55, while the return will be AED 90.

The agreement was signed by Ahmed Bahrozyan, chief executive of the RTA’s Public Transport Agency, and Ahmed bin Ali Al Balushi, Chief Executive Officer of Mwasalat. Ahmed Bahrozyan, spoke about the agreement saying, “We have enhanced the existing Dubai-Muscat route by adding the three stations that belong to the RTA. This means, the passengers will have better service because these stations are connected to multiple modes of transport, meaning commuters can take the taxi or Metro to continue their journey.”

 

Station timings:

Abu Hail Bus Station: 7.30am, 3.30pm, 11pm

Airport Terminal 2: 7.45 am, 3.45 pm, 11.15 pm
