Design and location of bus stations
While the primary focus of these bus stations is to serve the people in Dubai during the main Expo 2020 and activities related to it, they are also to be integrated into the existing bus network in Dubai once the event is completed. All the bus stations have locations that have been carefully selected after analyzing their capability to meet the needs of areas with high population density.
Three permanent stations will be constructed at these locations, namely – Business Bay, Jebel Ali and Al Baraha. Five temporary new stations will also be constructed at Dubai Silicon Oasis, Global Village, Meydan, Palm Jumeirah, and Al Jadaf. Al Tayar, director-general and chairman of the RTA, announced that locations for these stations had been carefully selected to meet the needs of highly populated residential areas and to promote use of public transport among them.
