New public bus route links Ras Al Khaimah with Global Village

Ras Al Khaimah residents can take a public bus that will go straight to Dubai’s popular festival park Global Village, authorities announced on Saturday. A one-way ticket costs Dh30.

Ras Al Khaimah Transport Authority (RAKTA) — in cooperation with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai and the Global Village — launched the bus route in response to increasing demand from residents who wish to visit the family-friendly destination, it said in a statement.

The bus service is available only every Friday, Saturday and Sunday with two roundtrips. Trips from Ras Al Khaimah to Global Village are scheduled at 3pm and 5pm, while those from the park back to the emirate are at 10pm and 12am.

Commuters can book online and pay for the trip on the smart app RAKBus. A one-way ticket costs Dh30.
