Default Bus route Dubai - Abu Dhabi

Hi all,

reading the Dubai explorer guide, (very well made indeed), i discovered there is a bus service from dubai to abu dhaby, but not much more.
Are you aware of a website with timetables, fare, stops, etc...
Do you feel like advising to use the service?

Regards.

RTA have two different services, one is Express and should take no more than 1.5 hours, unless they stop somewhere for an hour break, cause they normally pass me out at breakneck speeds

The RTA website above mentions departure times. I'd say make the trip during non peak, as the lines for the bus can be long, and the seating cramped otherwise. Through the Ghubaiba bus station, There are the HUGE buses, (cheaper, more space though, hard plastic seats) to the smaller more comfy, more cramped buses.

Fare is around AED15-AED 20 for a one way trip

Non peak = not during the morning/late afternoon where everybody gets on and off work.

No idea about the al ghazal service
But the RTA bus stops only at the World Trade Center roundabout and then prolly Al Ghubaiba.
So get down at the roundabout, and take the metro from Jafiliya to the MOE
