Bus Services between Fujairah and Dubai

Stop Press:
Bus schedules, timetables and just about everything else keep changing by the month.

Even the Fujairah bus station has changed from the Perfume Roundabout to what is called 'the old bus station' which is on the way to Dubai, between the Toyota Roundabout and the next set of lights (look out for the sign and entrance on the right after the service station).

The best thing is to call the toll free number and ask for the current timetable for the day you want to travel (at the moment the Friday timetable is different from other days) and ask where the bus journey finishes (Some days it is at Al Ittihad or Union Square and other days it stops at Al Rashidiya Metro station). Good luck!

Ten air-conditioned buses are now providing a transport service between Dubai and Fujairah.

Fujairah to Dubai
The first trip starts at 6.30am, the last trip leaves at 9.45pm and buses depart every 45 minutes.

Looking toward Dubai on Fujairah’s main street, the Fujairah buses leave just beyond the Perfume Roundabout, the old Hindi Movie House and the main taxi stand.

The buses finish at Al Ittihad Square, Dubai without stopping on the way.

Dubai to Fujairah
Buses leave from Al Ittihad Square every 45 minutes commencing at 6.45am and continuing until 10.30pm.
