DUBAI 19 May 2017: The Roads Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai has completed colour coding of all 186 Metro feeder buses.
“Having added the new colour scheme of Metro feeder buses, which fully emulates the colours of the metro carriages, these buses have now got a distinctive identity while plying the streets of Dubai,” said Abdullah Rashid Al Mazami, Director of Maintenance & Services, Public Transport Agency, RTA.
It is now easy for public transport riders in Dubai to use these buses to link with the Metro stations. Moreover, this colour coding overcomes communication and language issues, and adds a touch of beauty to the public transport network as well as the tourist look of the emirate, said Al Mazami.
Such colour coding and visual markings enable commuters to readily identify metro feeder buses with no hassles.
“The RTA is keen on continuously improving public bus services and enhancing their integration with other mass transit means such as the Metro, tram and water transport means like the water bus and the water taxi. The ultimate objective of these endeavours is to make this modern transit means the optimal mobility option in the Emirate of Dubai,” added the Director of Maintenance & Services, Public Transport Agency.
