Dubai Metro feeder bus routes

Wednesday 16 January 2019 (UAE)   

Dubai Metro bus feeder routes

List of RTA feeder bus routes for areas surrounding Dubai Metro stations. Buses mostly run every day during metro operating hours with frequency every 10 minutes (expect the buses to be less frequent on Fridays - the UAE equivalent of Sundays in the western world). Note that the Dubai Metro doesn't start until 1pm on Fridays so feeder buses won't be in operation before that time either.

  • Contact number for RTA bus services is 800-9090 (toll-free in UAE).
  • Feeder bus routes will not operate for Dubai Metro stations which are not yet open.
  • See also RTA Dubai bus routes for other routes, including X and C routes.
  • BS = Bus Station, MS = Metro Station.
  • For routes F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9 see F01, F02, F03, etc ...
