Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is set to construct 762 public bus shelters in strategic locations throughout the emirate.

According to the project plan, all shelters are scheduled for completion by 2025. RTA is exploring the use of 3D printing technology in the construction of some shelters on a trial basis.

Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of RTA, said that the bus shelters are part of the authority's efforts to improve public transport services and improve customer satisfaction. “The design of the new shelters is compatible with the Dubai Code for People of Determination, including wheelchair-accessible areas," he added. “

RTA has categorised the bus shelters into four tiers based on the number of users for each stop:

1. Main stop: Serves over 750 passengers daily
2. Secondary stop: Serves 250 to 750 passengers daily
3. Primary stop: Serves 100 to 250 passengers daily
4. Pick-up/drop-off station: Used by up to 100 passengers daily

In main stops, a section of the shelter will be air-conditioned. All shelters will feature shaded outdoor area and advertising spaces. Additionally, they will be equipped with information screens displaying bus routes, schedules, pick-up times, and other passenger-related information and relevant services.
