The AED25 Hatta Express will give visitors easy access to the moutainside tourist hub
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched an express bus route to shuttle commuters between Dubai and Hatta.
The Hatta Express will take passengers from Dubai Mall to Hatta Bus Station. In addition, a domestic bus route will now operate within Hatta, allowing visitors to move around with ease.
The improved infrastructure will help boost tourist numbers in the often hidden gem that is Hatta, home to picturesque landscapes, mountainside activities and a variety of tourist outlets, from food trucks to camp sites.
RTA director of Planning and Business Development, Public Transport Agency Adel Shakri said: “The first route, Hatta Express (H02), starts from the Dubai Mall Bus Station and heads to Hatta Bus Station at a frequency of two hours using deluxe coaches at a fare of AED25 per rider per journey.
“The second route, Hatta Hop on Hop off (H04), is a tourist service operating within Hatta. This circular route starts and ends at Hatta Bus Station and passes by four tourist landmarks: Hatta Wadi Hub, Hatta Hill Park, Hatta Dam and the Heritage Village. The service will run at a frequency of every 30 minutes at a fare of AED2 per rider per bus stop.”
