Dubai launches new circular marine service

The fare is Dh50 for silver class and Dh75 for gold class.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched a new circular marine line served by Dubai Ferry starting from Sheikh Zayed Road Station.

The service, which will run on a trial basis, aims to explore tourist attractions and increase the marine tourism amongst visitors, and residents, a statement issued on Monday said.

“The new line is launched as a test-run on a route starting from Sheikh Zayed Road Station on Dubai Water Canal. It passes through Burj Khalifa, Festival City, Dubai Creek, Old Souq, Al Seef, Spice Souq, La Mer (Jumeirah) and back to Sheikh Zayed Road Station.

“The launch of this line is part of RTA’s efforts to enhance the tourist profile of these areas, which have an attractive array of captivating urban landmarks,” said Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashimi, Director of Marine Transport at RTA’s Public Transport Agency.

RTA has provided parking spaces for users of this service around Sheikh Zayed Road Station on Dubai Water Canal. The service is available on Thursday at 9:00 pm or 10:00 pm, and on Friday from 4:00 pm up to 10:00 pm every week.

Fare

The service is subject to demand and will be operated if there are a minimum of 21 adult riders. The fare is Dh50 for silver class and Dh75 for gold class.

Children from age 2 to 10 years will get a 50 per cent discount, and the journey will be free for those under the age of two.

Interested riders can communicate with RTA Call Center (8009090) to know more about the journey.
