RTA unveils new colour scheme for metro feeder buses

DUBAI, The Roads and Transport Authority’s Public Transport Agency has unveiled a new colour scheme for the Dubai Metro Feeder Buses, emulating the design of the metro carriages.

The step aims to ease the mobility of commuters, and enhance the integration of public transit means in general and public buses and metro in particular.

“The RTA has so far repainted 70 buses, and by the end of the first quarter of 2017, all 186 metro feeder buses will bear the new colour scheme,” he noted,” explained Abdullah Rashid Al Mazami, Director of Maintenance and Services, Public Transport Agency, RTA.

“All Metro feeder buses will have a new colour scheme replicating the shape of the metro carriages. The step is aimed to make customers happier through adding colour and visual markings that help commuters readily identify metro feeder buses. This design has been widely applauded by public transport users, tourists and visitors descending on Dubai from all countries,” Al Mazmi continued.

“RTA is keen on continuously improving public buses and enhancing their integration with other mass transit means such as the metro, tram and water transport means, like the water bus and the water taxi. The ultimate objective of these endeavours is to make this modern transit means the optimal mobility option in the Emirate of Dubai,” he added.
