    UAE: The Dh7 bus-on-demand service in Ajman has been discontinued indefinitely.



    Authorities said on Tuesday that the bus-on-demand (BOD) service in Ajman has been discontinued from June 4 until further notice. The Transport Authority’s BOD service, which operates minibuses from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m., reduces commuter wait times and lessens traffic congestion. The bus’s itinerary is quickly determined based on service demands, and seats are reserved using an app.

    The commuter uses the AI-powered software to indicate where they are going and where they want to go; it then indicates the closest bus stop.

    Using the app, each passenger pays Dh7.A customer will be charged Dh4 for each extra person, up to a maximum of four, if they are ordering the service for more than one. There will be a brief outage of this service. “Thank you for your cooperation and understanding,” the Ajman Transport Authority stated.
