Aiming to upgrade existing bus services, the new buses will help improve the quality of transport and frequency of services across Abu Dhabi city and elsewhere in the emirate.
A total of 112 new buses will operate in Abu Dhabi and 28 in Al Ain.
All Abu Dhabi buses are now back to working their original schedule before services were disrupted due to the spread of COVID-19.
Extensive cleaning and sterilisation work is carried out on each bus as part of ITC’s measure to ensure passenger safety.
The frequency of eight popular bus services including the 7, 22, 23, 54, 56, 63, 94 and 102 has also been improved with the addition of 146 more bus journeys per day.
Community services have also been resumed in Musaffah and Mohammed bin Zayed City, including transfers to Abu Dhabi International Airport.
On the bus, passengers are required to take precautionary measures including wearing a mask and maintaining a safe social distance.
