Buses to Yas Island

There are 5 complimentary buses from shopping centers in Dubai to the Island of Yas in Abu Dhabi. That is, if you need to see the center of the city of Sheikh Zaid, the village of Heritage or Louvre, then this option does not fit.

Nuance first – only for visitors of parks

Free buses are intended only for visitors to Amusement Parks Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros.

For landing you need to have a pre-purchased e-mail ticket to one of these parks. Phrase "We will buy tickets at the checkout" the rights to travel does not give. Often drivers do not check tickets, but it’s not worth counting on it.

Nuance second – no booking

Landing is made in the order of the general queue, no booking in advance. Accordingly, there is probability that the places are not enough. Of course, on weekdays, the probability of such an event is almost equal to zero. But on weekends and holidays it is quite possible.

Weekend in the UAE is Friday and Saturday, since Friday is the sacred day of the week in Islam. Read the details in our article "Weekend and Friday in the UAE". Schedule of national holidays, see the article "Holidays in the UAE".
