Dubai reveals bus stations plan exclusively to be made for Expo 2020. Dubai’s transport authority has approved the plan to build 14 bus stations and one bus depot at Al Quoz. They will be used during the expo to transport people in green buses to the main event.
All of the 14 new structures will include glass and metal in their construction to provide openness. The final plan for that is already approved by Dubai transport authority. After the world fair, the bus stations will be integrated into the Dubai bus network, according to a statement released on Wam, the state news agency.
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 have been carefully selected to meet the needs of highly populated residential areas and to promote use of public transport among them.
