The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the launch of two new marine transport lines to serve the latest tourist destinations and residential communities in Dubai, as part of the comprehensive Marine Transport Plan 2020-2030. The plan aims to serve residential communities and development projects in the region with a sea view.
Serving between Bluewaters Island and the Marina, two tourist and recreational areas, the first line operates on all weekdays according to a plan tailored to the pattern of daily riders, from Monday to Friday from 16:50 to 23:25, and at the end of the week on Saturday and Sunday from 16:10 to 23:45.
As for the second line, it connects the residential areas in the Dubai Creek Marina area, Creek Harbor Station, with the surrounding attractions at the Dubai Festival City during weekends (Saturday and Sunday) from 16:00 to 23.55.
The collaboration of the Maritime Transport Department with real estate developers comes from the continuous improvement of services, with the aim of meeting customer services and achieving the city’s goals in terms of quality of life, in accordance with the strategic goals of the authority.
RTA is working to develop the public and tourist marine transport sector, with the aim of serving residents and visitors and ensuring customer satisfaction in the Emirate of Dubai. Collaboration is underway with developers to link the ‘Marfa Market’ on Deira Island with Dubai Creek through the ferry and heritage abras, and the new line is expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2022.
