Abu Dhabi: A new express bus service, brought in over Eid, has proven a hit with commuters.
Operating between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, the speedy service has become popular among regular commuters between the two cities.
The bus office at Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi introduced the new line on Sunday.
Named ‘X90’, it operates from Abu Dhabi between 4:30am and 12 midnight every half hour, said a customer care executive at DoT’s call centre.
From Al Ain, it also operates between 4.30am and 12 midnight, every half hour, between the two cities. The Abu Dhabi–Al Ain service has only one stop in between at Al Khatem. The ticket to Al Khatem costs Dh8.
The new service replaced the previous bus service over Eid, named 700, which had multiple stops between the two cities. More info
