How to get to Ferrari World by public transport

When we were at home, we tried to find out how to get to Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi from Dubai. Most tourists go to Dubai and some of them would like to go to this amusement park but don’t want to rent a car or pay a high cost for taxi. If you book an excursion with a tour operator, you have to adjust to their time schedule. This article provides you all the information you need to get there on your own for only 10 euro a person, return price. This is very cheap because the travel distance is about 200km one way. Be careful, Ferrari World is not open on Mondays.

You have to start at the Al Ghubaiba green line metro station in Dubai. Here you find all the main Dubai bus lines. The first bus departs around 6:30. Every 20 minutes until midnight, there is a bus to Abu Dhabi. The same is true in the other direction. It is indicated on the bus E1-Abu Dhabi. When you arrive at the Abu Dhabi Main Bus Station (the last stop), you cross the road. There you have 7 busses an hour to Yas Island. After that it is a 2,5km walk. If you don’t want to walk, take bus 190 in Abu Dhabi, this one drops you in front of the Ferrari World entrance. There is however only one bus an hour for the 190, except in the evening when you come back, then it is each half hour.

If you decide to do the walk, bring water, it can be very hot during from May till October. The walk is in fact special because they built a kilometres long pedestrian path in the middle of the dessert with flowers and trees on each side. These pave walks you find everywhere around Yas Island, it must be very expensive to maintain this in this heat.

Toen we nog thuis waren, hebben we geprobeerd uit te zoeken hoe we naar Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi konden gaan vertrekkende uit Dubai. De meeste toeristen zitten in Dubai en sommige zouden wel graag dit pretpark bezoeken. Wij hielden er niet van een auto te huren of veel te betalen voor een taxi. Als je een excursie boekt met een lokale tour operator ben je gebonden aan zijn tijdschema. Dit artikel geeft je alle informatie om in Ferrari World te komen met het openbaar vervoer, voor slechts 10 euro per persoon, heen en terug. Dit is zeer goedkoop daar de afstand toch 200 km is, enkele rit. Opgelet, Ferrari World is niet open op maandag.

Je begint aan het Al Ghubaiba metro station in Dubai, de groene lijn. Hier vind je het hoofd busstation van Dubai. De eerste bus naar Abu Dhabi vertrekt ongeveer rond 6:30. Iedere 20 minuten is er een bus tot middernacht. Hetzelfde tijdschema wordt aangehouden voor de terugweg. Op de display van de bus staat E1-Abu Dhabi, je kan je niet vergissen. Wanneer je aankomt in het hoofdstation van Abu Dhabi, de laatste halte, steek je de straat over. Daar heb je 7 bussen per uur naar Yas Island. Daarna is het nog 2,5 km wandeling, je ziet Ferrari World liggen. Indien je niet wil wandelen moet je in Abu Dhabi bus 190 nemen, deze dropt je voor de ingang van Ferrari World. Gedurende de dag rijdt de 190 ieder uur en ’s avonds voor de terugweg ieder half uur.

Als je beslist te wandelen, breng dan water mee want het kan zeer heet zijn van mei tot oktober. De wandeling is speciaal, het km lange wandelpad met bomen en bloemen ligt in zo’n warm gebied dat dit ongelooflijk duur moet zijn in onderhoud..
