Hi Everyone!
I am living in Khalifa A and have a maid wanting to travel to town without paying insane taxi fares. Does anyone know of a bus service - official or unofficial - that Philipina's can access?
Thanks,
Ozgal

There are now bus stops along both 15th and 16th streets and I've seen the bus on 16th street both yesterday and today. There are route maps on the signs but I can't see them too well while driving by.

I have seen the 160 bus as being a Khalifa City A bus and I saw it downtown too. However I can't seem to find any info on it online. If you do find out, can you post it here?

Thanks

Curiouser and curiouser! Have searched online for info too with no luck - but I realise things can be slow to make it onto the Net here. Shall go hunting down 15/16th and see if I can get any more details. Promise to post if I do!

We've seen new bus stop signs on street 33 in Khalifa B in the last week. Anyone know anything about it?

I saw the bus on 16th street today and I caught a glimpse of a number on the back that said for information or queries to call 80055555 (there may be an extra 5 or it could be missing a five - I just know that there were a number of 5's).

Hope this is of some help to you.

I'll be watching this thread. We saw a bus heading toward the city yesterday going over the musaffa bridge and were just saying we need to find out where and when as it will help all the nanny's. Haven't been able to find out much though.

I called the number on the signs earlier as I couldn't contain myself that public transport had finally made it to KCA and nearly crashed my car to see an AD bus drive past ARG.
It's the 160, it runs every 30 mins from 5.30 am until 10.45pm from KCA to town, and the last service in the other direction (i.e. back to KCA) leaves AD at 12.15am, seven days a week.
They couldn't tell me where it stops or goes or anything like that, I guess we'll have to hop on and find out! The route map isn't on the internet, and the route map on the signs is simply of AD island.
Hope this helps!

Well done! Hubby and I don't have a car yet, so perhaps we will go on a little adventure on the weekend and check it out. Might be a nice city tour! Who knows.....

saw the 160 today and it turned off 16th st onto 15th in the direction of Social Support Centre towards Horizon School. Interestingly it had a sign in the front saying "Shahama" Don't know if that was its ultimate destination.....

Thanks for the info Lami. This morning I went looking for the bus stops in KCB on 33rd and 72nd. I could only find one on 33rd, just before the York villas. I hope that they will be putting in more stops than that. :huh:

I finally found this thread! Anyone know the route in KCA, I tried looking on the web but not much detail given.
For example, I want to know if I get on outside Raha School where are the stops after that before heading for AD.
