Sharjah Transport Corporation will start a new bus route this week, basically for the benefit of the workers of Sonapur labour camps on the outskirts of Dubai.
Sharjah Intercity Transport Manager Adel Al Hosany said the new route starts from Sharjah Airport to Sonapur, passing by Rashidiya Metro Station, and ending at Deira City Centre Bus Station.
“With a maximum frequency time on an hourly basis, the service will be available from 5.30am to 11.30pm every day,” the official said.
He said that plans to launch more routes between Sharjah and Dubai, from the National Paints Roundabout to Al Qusais are underway. “As part its plan in 2010, we want to increase the number of bus trips and decrease frequency time.”
Hosany said that 115 Sharjah intercity buses, other than the eastern region services, make 250 trips daily. The tariff ranges from Dh5 to Dh30. — firstname.lastname@example.org
