New circular marine line launched on Dubai Water Canal

Here in Dubai, there are loads of ways to travel – and if we’re not going by private yacht then we at least want to go by water.

Luckily for us, there’s a brand-new marine line being trialled by the RTA and Dubai Ferry, and we can’t think of a nicer way to commute to work or explore the city.

The service, which starts from Sheikh Zayed Road Station on Dubai Water Canal, is currently subject to demand and will be operated if there are a minimum of 21 adult riders – with silver class tickets costing Dhs50 and gold class tickets costing Dhs75.

Kids aged two to ten years old will get a 50 per cent discount, and the journey will be free for those under the age of two.

The marine line aims to help visitors explore tourist attractions and increase marine tourism and residents.

Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashimi, Director of Marine Transport at RTA's Public Transport Agency, said: "The new line is launched as a test-run on a route starting from Sheikh Zayed Road Station on Dubai Water Canal.

"It passes through Burj Khalifa, Festival City, Dubai Creek, Old Souq, Al Seef, Spice Souq, La Mer (Jumeirah) and back to Sheikh Zayed Road Station.

"The launch of this line is part of RTA's efforts to enhance the tourist profile of these areas, which have an attractive array of captivating urban landmarks."

RTA has provided parking spaces for users of the service around Sheikh Zayed Road Station on Dubai Water Canal.

The service is available on Thursday at 9pm or 10 pm, and on Friday from 4pm up to 10pm every week.
