Are you frustrated by the delays caused by commuters on the road when you’re taking a bus to work? This may soon be a thing of the past as plans are underway to establish bus lanes in the Sultanate.
According to Oman’s public transport company, Mwasalat, the company’s decision came following a suggestion made by a passenger to design specified lanes for buses, which would help the development of the transport system.
The company told local media: “We have made great efforts to facilitate the use of buses, and we have addressed Muscat Municipality in coordination with the Ministry of Transport and Communications to establish a special lane.
“The municipality has submitted a tender for the project and we hope that the project will come to light soon,” it added.
When opened to the public, these lanes would aid in shortening the bus journeys and also cut the time between journeys.
