Staff Shuttle Bus
A route for a better commute!
The Department of Transport (DoT) in Abu Dhabi has started a number of initiatives to help in reducing traffic congestion on the streets of Abu Dhabi Emirate. The staff shuttle bus is one of those initiativesdesigned to offer company staff a form of transport that is an alternative tothe car, and can comprise all or part of an individual’s journey to and from work, and between theworkplace and other sites on company business.
What are the benefits for an Organization and its Employees?
Employees are one of the most important assets for an organization and providing them with staff shuttle bus services will have an indirect positive impact on their performance. The employee shuttle bus offers many benefits and advantages to employees, such as:
  • Reducing time spent in traffic and finding a parking space in congested areas.
  • Reducing the stress resulting from driving in peak hour traffic.
  • Reducing the cost of their daily travel including fuel, car maintenance and parking (if they drive their own can to work).
  • Ensuring they arrive to work on time.
  • Enjoying a high quality, frequent and sustainable alternative to a private car
  • Relaxing or working on-board the bus within the shuttle duration.
  • Improving employee benefits and travel options
  • Improving safety and reducing stress
It’s a fact, employees are more productive after a comfortable and hassle free ride to work.
A large amount of road space can be saved by providing a shuttle bus service for staff. Company shuttle bus can be high specification service and therefore provide a more pleasant and comfortable journey.
Other benefits include:
  • Reducing the reliance on private car and provides a suitable alternative, when own-transport is not available.
  • Reducing the amount of time staff spend commuting as a shuttle bus service will reduce congestion and improve traffic flow.
  • Faster and more direct services than equivalent public bus service serving the same locations as there are typically fewer alighting stops.
