Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island on Monday announced the launch of a new water taxi service that will ferry to and fro from various locations and around the island.
This facility is in addition to the Yas Express shuttle service and the ADCB Bikeshare network powered by Cyacle. This service will improve connectivity among major attractions around Yas Island and Abu Dhabi.
Aldar Properties on Monday reached an agreement with Jalboot Marine Network for the launch of the service.
Aldar Properties CEO Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak said the new water taxi service will add significant value to the existing communities on Al Raha Beach and the main city of Abu Dhabi, future residents of Yas Island, and tourists alike.
“As we seek to continually enhance the experience of those living and working in our prime destinations, this will be yet another milestone that improves peoples’ lives,” he said.
The service will also connect with the high-speed ferry service that Jalboot operates around Abu Dhabi City, stopping at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi Mall, Etihad Towers and Fairmont Hotel. Emirates Consortium group CEO Chakib Bouayad said the partnership is part of firm’s commitment to Abu Dhabi’s 2030 Vision. More info
