School Buses

School buses

Dubai College runs its own fleet of school buses to collect students from a wide area. The drivers and conductors are fully trained to ensure the safety and security of all passengers. The bus routes are planned once it is known who is wanting to use the service. It is not a door-to-door service although all efforts will be made to ensure stopping points are convenient.

Subject to demand, our School’s buses pick up/drop off at designated stops in the following areas:

Al Barsha, Arabian Ranches, Arabian Ranches 2, Business Bay, Damac Hills, Dubai Hills Estate, Deira, Dubai Marina, Emirates Hills, Garhoud, Green Community, Jebel Ali, Jumeirah, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Jumeirah Heights, Jumeirah Park/ Islands, Karama, Meydan Heights, Mirdif, Motor City & Motor City – Green Community, Mudon, Palm Jumeirah Golden Mile 1, Palm Jumeirah - Shoreline,Satwa, Silicon Oasis, Sustainable City, The Greens, The Lakes, The Meadows, The Springs, The Villa/Falcon City/Majan, Umm Suqeim, Villa Lantana, Victory Heights

Bus fees are AED 2,100 per term both ways and AED 1,100 one way.

However, we are pleased to inform you that we are offering a discount for families with more than one child using the school bus as follows:

· 2nd child: 20% discount on one-way and return (AED 880 / AED 1,680 per term)

· 3rd child: 50% discount on one-way and return (AED 550 / AED 1,050 per term)

· 4th and subsequent children free

Seat belts must be worn at all times.

We currently run 12 bus routes using our fleet of buses which have between 25 and 60 seats.   KDHA have advised that school buses may operate at 100% capacity.  There are strict protocols to ensure the safety of children using buses, including everyone must wear a mask, temperature before they get on and designated seats.   All buses are sanitised before each journey, with particular attention given to seat belts, arm rest, handles and rails.   

The increased capacity for this year means that we still have some seats on most routes and if you would like your child to travel on the bus please complete the bus request form

Should you have any questions please email our Transport Coordinator Mrs McNamara via  transport@dubaicollege.org.

Our bus timetables are available for current parents through the Parent Portal
