RTA to add 30km of bus and taxi lanes in 2014
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is set to add 30km of bus and taxi lanes to some of the busiest areas in the city next year, Gulf News has reported. The expansion comes following the success of the existing 10km of dedicated bus and taxi lanes, improving the efficiency of buses and saving considerable time for passengers. “We have identified 50 locations across Dubai that could potentially have bus priority lanes out of which we have selected 10 for phase three, which will be completed in 2015,” said Yousuf Al Ali, CEO of RTA’s Public Transport Agency. He added that the 10 routes will be spread across 30 kilometres of bus corridors in different areas of Dubai, particularly in Bur Dubai and Deira.
