What are my other transport options in Abu Dhabi?

If the free shuttle services don’t quite align with your plans or you’re in a rush, there are plenty of other public transport options in Abu Dhabi, including the local bus network, taxis, Careem private vehicle hire, and even boats!

  • You could alternatively use the Abu Dhabi Hop-on-hop-off Big Bus, which includes recorded commentary and runs in a circular loop around many of the city’s key attractions. It does, however, come with a charge in addition to your attraction tickets.

If you are heading to Expo 2020 from Dubai, there are also FREE Expo Rider buses operating from Abu Dhabi Bus Station and Marina Mall Abu Dhabi.
