  1. Traffic congestion in Sharjah, and between Dubai and Sharjah, means journey times can vary substantially. Allow journey time of at least 1½-2+ hours during peak traffic hours: 0600-1000 SHJ>DXB except Fridays, and 1400-2000 DXB>SHJ daily.
  2. Rolla Square not the same as Al Jubail Bus Station (Al Jebail), but is nearby: 20 min walk or 10 min drive by car, taxi, or bus. Bus routes 1, 3, 14X (from, not to Rolla Sq) stop at Jubail Fish Market near Jubail bus station. Bus routes 99, 112, 308 stop at Jubail bus station (to and from Rolla Sq). Bus route 114 stops at Jubail bus station (going to, not from Rolla Sq). Bus route 308 also stops at Jubail bus station going to Rolla Sq, but not from (which is strange for that route, maybe we have made an error reading the bus map).
  3. Friday timings different: E303 Fri from Sharjah starts 0530. E303A from Sharjah starts 0530. E304 Fri from Dubai starts 0700. E307 Fri from Dubai starts 0655, E307 Fri from Sharjah stars 0700. E307A Fri from Abu Hail first bus 1130, last bus 2230. E307A Fri from Sharjah first bus 1210, last bus 2310.
  4. KGL Passenger Transport Services, information provided by Sharjah Public Transport Corporation (STS).
  5. Fares on non-RTA routes: 111, 113 - AED 10 to and from Dubai. Update May 2014 bus departure times from Sharjah are every 30 mins at xx:15 and xx:45.
  6. STS information still lists RTA night buses as operating (30 Dec 2013), unknown if information current or out of date - STS also gives old fare information of AED 5 dhs per trip. See table below for old night bus information.
  7. E308 Sharjah-Jebel Ali route no longer operating? Is not in Mar 2014 list of RTA intercity routes but no cancellation notice seen. However, Mowasalat (Sharjah bus operator) has a route 308 from Sharjah to Al Quoz and Jebel Ali. Update Apr 2017, RTA bus route list does not have E308.
