There’s now a new bus route connecting Abu Dhabi and Dubai
The new route has been added for customer convenience…
If you live in the capital of Abu Dhabi and travel to Dubai on a regular basis – we have good news. There’s now a new bus route to Dubai from the capital so leave the car at home, save yourself the Dhs200 taxi fee, and hop on board.
For those travellers who head to Dubai on a regular basis, there is already the Intercity E101 bus from Abu Dhabi Central Bus Station to Ibn Battuta Metro Station in Dubai, however, the new Intercity E102 pick up point will be the Mussafah Shabiya Bus Station.
This is great news for those living in the area as it will save you the time and money from heading all the way to the Abu Dhabi Central Bus Station.
Here are the details for the E102 bus route:

It does sound like a lot of time and we can’t wait for the Hyperloop to open in 2020, but in the meantime, just think of how much reading, or work you can get done on the commute.
