Dubai: The new green bus of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will begin its journey from Friday on the feeder route F13.

Running between Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall station and Financial Centre, the green bus will operate on biodiesel, cutting CO2 emissions by 78 per cent.

On trial for six months, the bus will be part of the busy route that has a headway of ten minutes on weekdays and four minutes on Fridays.

“We are introducing this as part of our green initiatives. The service will be on trial for six months and hopefully if the results are good there could be more such buses,” Eisa Abdul Rahman Al Dossary, CEO of the RTA’s Public Transport Agency.

The usage of biodiesel means there will be a two per cent reduction in fuel costs, while the use of solar-powered LED lamps means there are further reduction in overall operation costs. More info
