When mentioning Sharjah, chances are, the first thing that pops in your mind is traffic. We’ve all had nightmares, tirelessly waiting in rush hour traffic between the emirates. Thanks to RTA, the new ferry service is going to be a game-changer for commuters, it runs 42 times a day, from Al Ghubaiba to the Sharjah’s Aquarium Marine Station. Each journey lasts 35 minutes.

Up to 125 passengers can be seated on the ferry. Standard silver class tickets cost Dhs 15, and gold class tickets cost Dhs 35. A ferry departs every half an hour during peak hours (5-9 am and 4-8: 30 pm).
