Dubai Ferry’s new October 2012 route, connects the cruise terminal at Port Rashid with Al Ghubaiba station in Bur Dubai.

The new route is part of the Roads and Transport Authority’s (RTA) efforts to upgrade the marine transport services.

According to RTA, the 100-seater ferries, which until now served on two routes — from Al Ghubaiba to Burj Al Arab and back, from Dubai Marina to Atlantis and back — have grown in popularity since their launch in March last year.

The sleek looking boats can travel at a maximum speed of 24 knots and have restrooms, kiosks for selling souvenirs and snacks as well as four LCD screens to provide entertainment facilities on board.

The route, like the existing ones, will cover a duration of one hour with fares ranging from Dh50 (silver ticket) to Dh75 (gold ticket). The tickets can be bought both through cash or credit card. Children between the age of 2 to 10 can have a 50 per cent discount.
