The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) announced the start of operations of City Sightseeing Sharjah tour buses.
The bus tour service commenced with three buses as part of phase I of the project, with the number of buses to be increased in accordance with market demand.
The double- decker bus can accommodate 72 persons and will operate seven days a week all year long. Ticket prices are set at AED 85 for adults and AED 45 for children with tickets valid for 24 hours.
The buses have been specifically designed to accommodate weather conditions of the region, with a convertible rooftop that can be removed during winter months for an open top tour experience or kept in place to ensure a fully air-conditioned interior for summer tours. The tickets can also be purchased at hotels and tour bus stops.
Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, chief operating officer of Shurooq said: “This step also comes in harmony with other steps, as the Authority has already embarked on a master plan to develop the Emirate’s tourism sector, most notably the marine tourism industry, as well as other significant sectors.”
The buses will also include an audio guide in German, Russian, English and Arabic. Five more languages – Chinese, Spanish, Urdu, Hindi, and French – are to be added in the future.
