A new night bus service has been launched by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority.

The service comes into effect from 10pm on Sunday, September 1, and runs each night until 5am.

The new route, known as N30, will start from Dragon Mart 2 at the International City before heading to Dubai International Airport (Terminal 2) via Rashidiya Metro Station.

The service will be of particular value to late-night commuters in the city who are unable to take the metro, which stops operating at 1am.

The RTA announced it would also improve the timing and connectivity of 11 other routes to boost public bus network in Dubai.

“The RTA is always keen on broadening and upgrading the scope of the public bus network,” said a spokesman for the group.

“It makes relentless efforts to enhance the integration of public buses with other transit means, such as the metro, tram and water transport.

“Such efforts are aimed to make these modern transit modes the best mobility choice across Dubai.”

The other routes that the RTA said it would improve included 11A, 24, 34, 50, 56, 95, 95A, 96, F53, X25 and N55.

No further details of the improvements being made to the existing routes were disclosed.
