No car, no problem!

The current season of Global Village Dubai is in full swing and if you really want to go but are not sure how to get there? Don’t worry! If you didn’t know already, Dubai’s Road Transport Authority (RTA) has ensured that the family fun destination is accessible with a public bus service – resumed when the new season began on Wednesday, October 18, 2023.

As always, the attraction had closed doors during the summer, all thanks (but no thanks) to the sweltering UAE heat. Now fully underway and close to completing the six months of the season, it has been welcoming visitors from far and wide once again, and is easily accessible by all with the bus service.

Where do I hop on board?

The operational network of the services features four routes connecting the village to different parts of the city.

Route 102, which departs from Rashdiya Bus Station to Global Village will rotate at intervals of 60 minutes.

Route 103 departs from Al Ittihad Bus Station to Global Village every 40 minutes, while Route 104 commences from Al Ghubaiba Bus Station to Global Village every 60 minutes.

Finally, Route 106 sets off from the Mall of the Emirates Bus Station to Global Village, running every 60 minutes.

Fares for these buses are capped at a very reasonable rate. A single trip to the location will cost you just Dhs10.

The RTA has deployed deluxe coaches to run this service, with high-quality buses with utmost comfort and safety measures in place.

Going on year 28

As always, season 28 of the most loved outdoor attraction in the city, crowned as such at the What’s On Dubai Awards 2024, is slated to run for a total of six months, from October 18 to April 28, 2024.
