Abu Dhabi Bus Passes

It is possible to buy an Orja Bus Pass at the bus stations or at Red Crescent Kiosks throughout Abu Dhabi. It is also possible to pay on the bus, 1AED for a single trip, to do this enter from the front door, with exact change, and place the money in the box next to the driver.

Single trips on the regional routes cost AED 2. There are four kinds of tickets – one trip (AED 1), day pass (AED 3), monthly pass (AED 40), senior citizen pass and a pass for those with special needs.

When you purchase a day pass you need to scratch out the date of use. The card is not valid for 24 hours but rather from time of purchase until midnight that day. The cards should be presented to the driver. The monthly pass is used in the same way and is valid for a month from date of purchase.
