It’s bad enough that (depending on what time you travel) you can get stuck in traffic for hours when driving, while making the trip via public transport is even more arduous.

Well, we have some good news. The RTA has introduced a new bus route between both emirates that could severely cut down on travel time.

Departing every 30 minutes from the Rashidiya metro station, bus E311 passes via Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road hitting 19 stops along the way, including the National Paints roundabout and the old Gold Souq, before ending its route at the Al Jubail station.
