A typical bus stop in Dubai
Fully air-conditioned, spic and span, spotlessly clean, sparkling insides… This is the bus service in Dubai. Don’t you think it’s too good to be real ? But well, this is an evening in Dubai, supposed to be peak hour in any city of the world. And no, this was not a Friday, their usual holiday.
The bus fare is 2 Dirhams (their currency) for any distance you want to travel. All the buses and the bus stops are air conditioned. There is a route map inside the bus and at the bus stop as well.
One has to get in from the front door of a bus. Why ?
There is no conductor in the bus, the driver issues the tickets. Some seats are reserved for ladies but there is no restriction for them sitting elsewhere too.
