Mwasalat is working with the Muscat Municipality and the Ministry of Transport and Communications for making dedicated lanes for public transport buses, said a statement from the company. A tender has been submitted for the project. Mwasalat is hopful that dedicated bus lanes will reduce commuting time and encourage people to leave their vehicles and use public transport instead.
As part of the public transport strategy for Muscat, to be developed over a period of seven years, dedicated bus lanes would be introduced in the first phase. In recent months, Mwasalat has introduced several new routes in the capital, connecting areas such as Ansab, Al Mouj, Al Khuwair, PDO and Muscat airport.
