ABU DHABI — The Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi has started construction of 550 air-conditioned bus stop shelters in the emirate at a total cost of Dh100 million, Director, Public Buses, at DoT Saeed Al Hamili told Khaleej Times recently.
“A specialised company has been hired to design the shelter at par with the best international concepts that fit the UAE environment. The shelters should be spacious and don’t expose passengers to any inclement weather in summer or winter,’’ he said.
The shelters will be equipped with round-the-clock information screens to update passengers on relevant information such as the schedule of buses, road maps, link routes and estimated journey time.
