Getting Around

It's no coincidence that so many people who live in Abu Dhabi rely on cars; getting around without one can be tricky, especially if you live off the island. There are plans in place however, that will see the city become more commuter friendly, with trams and metro lines all due. Already there's a free park and ride service that runs from Zayed Sports City into the centre of the city, which highlights the significance the government is putting on mobility as more people start to call Abu Dhabi 'home'. 

Smart app
Launched in 2014 by the Department of Transport (DoT), Darb is a mobile app that has a bunch of smart features to make getting around easier. It lets users see live data on traffic conditions, incidents and road works as well as real-time bus arrival information and nearest bus stops, and airport information including arrivals and departures. The app also has a route planning function that will use the real-time information to give an accurate arrival time. On top of that you can also book taxis, pay for on-street parking and even give the DoT feedback on damaged signs or malfunctioning traffic lights.
