The RTA has decided to study the feasibility of bus services to Jumeirah Village as well as Jumeirah Village Circle and Triangle, following several complaints by residents of these neighbourhoods.

The lack of public transport to and from Jumeirah Village forces the community to rely on alternatives that are often not viable, according to residents.

The recently developed community, several parts of which are yet to open, features a mix of townhouses and apartment buildings. However, according to residents, the area has a population of at least 10,000. More info
