  1. Journey lengths from RTA information, and anything less than 1 hour is probably only realistic on Fridays or late at night. Allow up to double the given times during the day, especially during peak hours (0600-1000 Sharjah to Dubai, and 1600-2100 Dubai to Sharjah).
  2. Bus station name. Rolla Square might also be to and from Al Jubail bus station (both names seen on RTA timetables).
  3. On Fridays and public holidays, bus service doesn't start until about 1500-1600 (3pm-4pm) for E307, 0700-0800 (7am-8am) for E309, and is less frequent than Saturday to Thursday.
  • Some destination names have a variety of spellings eg Al Ghusais (Gusais, Qusais, AlGhusais, AlQusais), Karama (AlKarama, Al Karamah, Krama), Ittihad (Itihad, Etihad, Ettihad), Al Jubail (AlJubail, Jubil, Jubayl), Jebel Ali (Jabal Ali), Ghubaiba (Gubaiba, Ghubayba, Gubayba, Gubiba, Ghubiba, Ghubaibah, Gubaibah, etc), Baniyas (Bani Yas, Bani Yass, Baniyass).
  • E311 bus route from Dubai to Sharjah launched 01 November 2008, timings from 0400-2330 or 1600-2330 Sat-Thu, and 0700-2330 on Fridays and public holidays with frequency every 20 minutes (RTA press release said 4pm start but might be a typo - these buses would start off Al Qusais Station to Al Jubail Station at 04.00 pm and the service would continue up to 11.30 pm, from Saturday to Thursday).
