COP28 Initiates Abu Dhabi’s First 24/7 Intercity Bus Service to Dubai

In a groundbreaking initiative, Abu Dhabi introduces a continuous 24/7 bus service to Dubai, exclusively serving COP28 participants. The fleet, comprised of nine all-electric buses, conducts 44 daily trips, shuttling passengers between Terminal A of Abu Dhabi International Airport and the COP28 venue at Expo City Dubai.

Driving Sustainable Change

Green Bus Program Takes the Lead

Operated under the Green Bus program by the Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport, Abu Dhabi, this service marks a significant milestone as the first intercity bus transportation between emirates operating round the clock.

Environmental Impact: COP28

Reducing Carbon Footprint

Covering a daily distance of 520 km, these electric buses contribute to a reduction of 3.7 tonnes of carbon emissions per day. Post COP28, the buses will seamlessly integrate into Abu Dhabi’s public transport fleet.

Toward a Greener Future

Expanding Eco-Friendly Transportation

As part of the ongoing expansion of green bus services in Abu Dhabi, the fleet is expected to cover approximately 3,150 km daily, resulting in an annual reduction of over 900 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. The rapid two-hour charging time for electric buses adds to the efficiency of the initiative.

Aligning with Sustainability Goals

Zero Carbon Emissions by 2050

This initiative aligns with Abu Dhabi’s commitment to eco-friendly transportation, supporting environmental protection efforts and contributing to the government’s strategy to achieve zero carbon emissions by 2050. The service represents a pivotal step towards establishing a comprehensive transportation system that meets the needs of residents and visitors while promoting sustainable practices.
