A New Bus Service Will Link Abu Dhabi City To BAPS Hindu Mandir


In a bid to enhance accessibility to the newly inaugurated BAPS Hindu Mandir, a traditional sandstone temple located in Abu Mureikha, off the Abu Dhabi-Dubai highway, a new bus service has been introduced to ferry visitors from Abu Dhabi City.

The service will commence from Abu Dhabi Bus Terminal and traverse through Sultan bin Zayed the First Street, known as Muroor Street, proceeding via Hamdan bin Mohammed Street to Al Bahyah, Al Shahama, and culminating at the BAPS Mandir as the final destination.

The journey from the city to the temple is estimated to take approximately 90 minutes. This service will operate alongside the existing stops served by route 201 in suburban areas.

Pujya Brahmaviharidas Swami from the BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha expressed gratitude to local authorities for introducing the new bus service. During weekends, the existing bus number 201 (Al Bahyah Souq) will be replaced with 203 (BAPS Temple), facilitating community members’ transportation needs. Already, residents have commenced utilizing the service available on Saturdays and Sundays. To avail of the service, community members are required to possess a Hafilat card for bus travel.

The Integrated Transport Centre (ITC) of the Department of Municipalities and Transport in Abu Dhabi recently standardized city and suburban transport services, with fares set at Dh2 and an additional five fils for every kilometer crossed. Failure to produce a bus card while traveling may result in a fine of Dh200.
