SRTA Plans 6330 Trips Between Cities During Eid Al Fitr Holiday

The Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) has created a plan to ensure safe passenger transportation services during daily trips between cities over the Eid Al Fitr holiday.

This plan involves intensifying daily passenger trips, with an expected 6,330 trips to be operated on all transportation lines between cities from 9th to 12th April.

Yousef Khamis Al Othmani, Chairman of the Sharjah RTA, stated that the emirate's location has made it a hub for many Arab and foreign nationalities. As a result, the Authority is working to keep pace with the increasing number of users of transportation services, specifically buses, by developing plans and adopting strategies that enhance transportation services. These strategies include transportation operations on various lines in the emirate, with a focus on achieving high levels of smoothness and comfort through safer means of transportation.

The Authority has completed its readiness to receive well-wishers on Eid Al- Fitr by providing sufficient numbers of buses to accommodate transportation users in the emirate. It has allocated 789 buses to work on transport lines between cities during that period. The Authority's goal is to provide all means of comfort to its users on an ongoing basis.

The Authority has adopted several strategies to transport passengers during the holiday. One of these is reducing the time gap between buses operated by the Authority daily and on 15 main lines between cities, to reach five minutes at peak time during the Eid holiday out of 45 minutes on regular days. This serves to achieve smooth transportation and avoid crowding of passengers at the stations. This step is part of the Authority's directions to increase the operating capacity of trips and improve the quality of service provided to the public, aiming to provide flexible and easy trips at times that suit all the requirements of transportation users in the emirate.

The proactive plan to accommodate the growth in the number of passengers included increasing the number of employees and work crew on duty during the Eid holiday to the appropriate extent to regulate the movement of passengers within Jubail Station and other stations.

Abdulaziz Al Jarwan, Director of the Authority for Transportation Affairs, revealed that the Maritime Transport Department of the Roads and Transport Authority has completed its preparations for sea trips during the days of Eid Al Fitr. The maritime transport service between the Emirates of Sharjah and Dubai will be implemented during the holiday at a rate of four trips per day. The trips will depart from Aquarium Marine Transport Station in Sharjah to Al Ghubaiba station in Dubai. This will be done within the framework of joint coordination and cooperation with the RTA in Dubai.
