Feeder buses for the Dubai Metro operate at every metro station. There are stops outside each station where you can connect to the buses.
There are a number of routes for each station but sometimes it can be difficult to get hold of the exact route and timetable information from the RTA because these are constantly changing.
The feeder buses are aimed at getting passengers from the stations to either residential or commercial areas, so that the public transport system can cover more areas.
Included in Fare
The fares for travelling on a feeder bus are incorporated in your overall ticket price. This means that you need to calculate how many zones you will pass through on your whole journey in order to know the feeder bus fare.
If you do not travel though any further zones on your bus route then effectively your feeder bus fare is free.
You must change to the bus from the metro within 30 minutes for the fare to be continuous.
Remember to check in and check out with your nol card when you use the feeder bus though, as otherwise you may be charged extra for your fare.
Check in points are located at the front and the middle of the bus and you need to swipe your nol card over these on entry and exit of the feeder bus.
Feeder Bus Timetables
The only way that you seem to be able to get up to date information on Dubai Metro feeder buses is to actually visit the station itself and check the timetables. Route maps for the feeder buses can also be picked up at bus stations and at some of the larger metro stations.
You can also use the Wojhati journey planner.
The routes of the feeder buses and the frequency changes from time to time, so it is worth checking either online or at the stations.
In addition to feeder buses there are other bus routes that may stop at the Metro stations.
