Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have introduced two new circular public bus routes: DH1, which runs between Dubai Hills and Equity Metro Station, and DA2, which travels between DAMAC Hills and Dubai Studio City. These two routes are part of RTA's initiative to improve the internal bus network and strengthen connections with other forms of public transportation in the Emirates.

Adel Mohammed Shakeri, Director of Planning and Business Development at the Public Transport Agency of RTA, emphasized the significance of offering public transport services to facilitate movement throughout the emirate. This includes providing convenient, fast, and seamless mobility options to improve integration with developer communities.

Shakeri explained the details of these two new routes: DH1 is a circular bus service shuttling between Dubai Hills and Equity Metro Station with one-hour intervals. The first journey departs from Dubai Hills at 7:09 am, with the last trip departing at 10:09 pm on weekdays and at 12:09 am (past midnight) on weekends (Friday to Sunday).

DA2: A circular route commuting between DAMAC Hills and Dubai Studio City with a two-hour frequency. The first journey leaves DAMAC Hills at 5:47 am, and the last journey departs at 9:32 pm daily. The fare is fixed at AED5 per journey.

RTA is committed to expanding the public bus network and enhancing its integration with other mass transit methods, such as the metro, tram, and marine transport. Improving the connections between these various means makes them the preferred modes of transportation in the emirate.
