How the bus station in Satwa in going to look

Two new bus terminals in Dubai will start receiving passengers later this year.

Both have been designed with facilities designed with sustainability and People of Determination in mind.

The stations in Satwa and Oud Metha will together serve up to 25,000 passengers per day.

They're part of a modern upgrade by the emirate's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) to the city's bus services and will help connect travellers with parts of the city not on its two Metro lines, including Academic City and International City.

Foundation work and concrete skeletons have already been completed on both stations, which will have furnished public rest houses, prayer rooms for men and women, staff offices, public toilets and a children’s corner, as well as self-service kiosks, nol card machines, bus information display panel, customer’s happiness’ index, ATMs, refreshment and vending machines.

The RTA also plans to build more than 1,500 new bus shelters are part of the investment in the bus network. These will be designed to take "into consideration the use of an architectural theme befitting their surroundings," the RTA says.
