Mwasalat (formerly ONTC) runs comfortable buses with air-con and toilets between Muscat (Oman) and Dubai.
In Dubai, Bus 201 leaves at 7.30am, 3.30pm and 11pm from the local office about 800m north of Deira City Centre and arrives roughly six hours later at Azaiba station in Muscat. Return buses leave Muscat at 6.20am, 3.20pm and 11.20pm and need an hour longer. Buses make a pit stop in Sohar (Oman). Women travelling alone usually sit at the front of the bus.
