3D maps of Dubai's public bus routes have been installed in 16 bus stations across the emirate as part of plans to upgrade facilities, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.

Dubai's transport authority said in a statement that it is also currently working on the provision of more seats and shades for passengers, and slashing the service frequency in some routes based on public feedback.

The RTA is also looking to improve the service of inquiring about items lost on the public bus network.

"The installation of newly designed stands displaying 3D bus charts is compatible with the needs of customers and users of mass transit means and main bus stations," said Adel Mohammed Shakri, director of planning & business development, RTA's Public Transport Agency.

"The 3D maps installed in several bus stations are characterized by ultra-high accuracy where all details of the station are visible, and service points are clearly marked. A spider map has also been provided depicting the path of public bus routes serving the station."

He said a new plan is also being developed where transport information will be on display at various facilities and landmarks of Dubai.
