Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) made significant changes to the bus network in Dubai this month.

A new bus route, F26, was launched, apart from some other changes including the connection of new communities in the emirate and the cancellation of several routes.

New bus route

On November 1, 2015, route F26 was launched. As a feeder bus, it starts from the bus stop near Noor Bank Metro Station and runs through Interchange 4, Umm Suqeim Road.

It serves all districts of Al Quoz Industrial Areas 1, 2, and 3 and passes through First Gulf Bank Metro Station, residential quarters of National Cement Company, and other landmarks in the area.

Routes cancelled

With the launch of a new route serving Al Quoz area, existing routes in this community were cancelled. These routes include 313, 323 and X10.

Route 313 and 323 served Al Quoz area, departing from and returning to Al Quoz bus station, while Route X10 connected Al Quoz bus station to Gold Souq bus station.
