Starting July 1, residents of Damac Hills 2, Dubai’s first eco-friendly residential area, will have access to a new public bus service. This popular neighborhood on the outskirts of Dubai is renowned for its sustainable living features, including homes built with energy-saving materials, eco-friendly lighting, low-emission paint, and solar water heating systems.

Bus stop signs featuring the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) logo have recently been installed throughout the Damac Hills 2 community, introducing a new route named DA2. This route will traverse Damac Hills 2’s clusters before heading out to Dubai Studio City. An RTA call center executive confirmed that the DA2 buses will begin operations on July 1.

“The route will operate between Damac Hills 2 and Dubai Studio City, with departures every two hours,” reads the newly installed RTA signboard at the bus stop. The first trip from Damac Hills 2 is scheduled for 5:47 am, and the last trip is at 9:32 pm daily. Commuters will be charged a flat rate of Dh5 per trip.

This new public transport option is expected to bring significant relief to Damac Hills 2 residents, many of whom currently drive to work. For those without cars, like Filipino expat Linda Panganiban, the new bus route is a welcome addition. Panganiban currently relies on the free shuttle bus provided by the community’s management, which is often full during rush hour, forcing her to pay Dh90 to Dh100 for a cab ride to the city.

“This RTA bus will definitely be a big help,” Panganiban said. “Imagine the difference from a Dh100 taxi ride to a Dh5 bus trip. The commute will definitely be longer, but I don’t mind. The savings will be worth it.”

The DA2 route will take commuters to Dubai Studio City, where they can transfer to another bus to reach the Metro.

Damac Hills 2 has become a popular choice for residents looking to live in a townhouse without breaking the bank on rent. In 2021, the annual rent for a three-bedroom villa in the area was as low as Dh40,000. This new bus service is another attractive feature for current and potential residents of the community.
