The Dubai Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has teamed up with Google to upload its public bus stop information on Google Earth.

The move is the first of its kind in the Middle East and North Africa, and will enable the city’s public bus users to check for related information on Google Earth.

Public Transport Agency acting CEO Mohammed Abu Baker Al Hashemi said the move was aimed at making Dubai’s bus system more user friendly by informing passengers of alternative routes and timetables.

“Displaying public bus mobility information on the digital space reflects our objective of providing bus users with the information that assist them with their daily life,” said Al Hashemi.
