The above changes are the result of an in-depth study of bus services that focused on community needs and aimed at providing more comprehensive services and communication.
All public transport systems at ITC are completely safe to use as all surveillance systems are operated and all public buses in Abu Dhabi are disinfected every time after bus rides and overnight cleaning when buses return to bus stops. All contact points such as ticketing machines will be disinfected regularly to ensure the safety of our passengers. That is more than just following the physical distance from buses and bus stops.
Passengers and drivers are obliged to wear masks and follow self-defense measures while using public buses to ensure the safety of all during these difficult times.
