Completion of construction of 3 bus stations at Al Jaffiliya, Al Qusais and Deira
(RTA) announced the completion of Al Jaffiliya, Etisalat and Union public bus stations at Al Jaffiliya, Al Qusais and Deira. The new stations are a further addition to Al Ghubaiba Bus Station, which was opened in the final quarter of 2020 year.
“The construction of public bus stations complements RTA’s efforts to improve the public transport infrastructure and to encourage people to use mass transit means in their daily movement. The new stations boast of an innovative engineering design that blends the practical interior with a superb exterior. It employs the construction elements to serve and form part of the architectural design.
The new generation of public bus stations is designed to serve the needs of highly populated areas as well as the current and future requirements for public bus services. The design also caters to the needs of sustainability and people of determination, yet coherent with the identity and shape of RTA’s stations. The role of the new stations goes beyond the prevailing concept of serving passengers while offering integrated services, thanks to the provision of retail outlets, service points, offices and other amenities.
Al Jaffiliya Bus Station comprises a bus terminal and a multi-level building (Ground floor, 2 storeys, and bus stop yard). The building spans an area of 19,000 square metres that includes 484 square metres as an office area, and an area of 595 square metres for waiting passengers. The station has 6 slots for buses in addition to a parking space for 503 vehicles and a docking station for 30 bikes. The station can accommodate up to 7000 passengers. RTA anticipates the station to be used by 4500 passengers per day, and expects the number to rise to 6000 passengers per day during Expo 2020. The station serves 5 bus routes, which will increase to 6 routes during Expo. Likewise, the number of journeys starting from the station is expected to rise from 28 to 38 daily journeys during the Expo. The station is located at a walking distance from the World Trade Centre, Dubai Frame, General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, and the Zabeel Park, a key rendezvous for families and tourists seeking to explore some of Dubai wonders.
