Furthermore, support services are available 24/7 via the unified Service Support Centre of DMT and the Taxi Call Centre.

Public Bus Services

Public bus services, including both local and regional routes, will operate according to the regular weekend schedule during the Eid Al Fitr holiday. Additionally, the ITC has coordinated with relevant entities to increase the number of inter-city bus trips to accommodate the expected rise in demand during the holiday period.

Moreover, special bus services such as the Abu Dhabi Express and the ‘Abu Dhabi Link’ will run from 6 am to 11 pm throughout the holiday, providing extended transportation options for commuters.

Automated Rapid Transit (ART) Service

The Automated Rapid Transit (ART) service will maintain its regular schedule from Wednesday to Sunday, operating with a frequency of 60 minutes. This ensures that commuters have access to efficient and reliable transportation services during the holiday period.

Overall, the ITC’s initiatives aim to enhance mobility and accessibility for residents and visitors during the festive Eid Al Fitr holiday, contributing to a seamless travel experience across Abu Dhabi.
