Getting There & Away
Mwasalat buses run from Muscat’s Azaiba Bus Station (one-way OR1.3, return OR1.6) twice daily at 4am and 3pm, returning at 5.45am and 4.35pm.
Taxis are available from Muscat (137km, OR28, 45 minutes), and local taxis run from the middle of town.
Rustaq is at the junction of three important thoroughfares: Hwy 10 from Ibri, Hwy 11 from Mussanah (on the coast) and Hwy 13 from Barka via Nakhal. The Muscat Expwy has cut the journey time between the capital and Rustaq in half and it now takes just 45 minutes to drive between the two.
