The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will operate a free circular bus route as an alternative service following the full closure of the rail track of the Dubai Metro Red Line between Jumeirah Lakes Towers (JLT) and Ibn Battuta Stations.

Beginning from 5 January, the bus route will continue to mid-2019 to give way to Route 2020 construction works, according to an RTA statement.

Works will include construction of a new station and linkage to the existing one, and will entail full closure of Nakheel Harbour and Tower Station as well as the attached multi-level Park-N-Ride Terminal.

Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashmi, director of Planning and Business Development, RTA’s Public Transport Agency, said: “RTA would operate an alternative free circular bus service due to the full closure of the rail track of the Red Line between JLT and Ibn Battuta Stations.

 “This service is intended to meet the needs of public transport riders in general and metro riders commuting between the said two stations in particular.

“RTA is always keen to fulfil the needs of public transport users in Dubai, and offer integrated excellent services to customers with the aim of making them happier,” he added.
