From Al Jubail, Sharjah To Al Azaiba, Muscat, Sharjah Executive Council Approves New Transport Service

In a strategic move to enhance cross-border linkages, the Sharjah Executive Council (SEC) has given the nod for a new transport service between Sharjah and Muscat, Oman. This initiative comes to fruition following a collaborative agreement between the Sharjah Roads and Transport Authority (SRTA) and Oman National Transport Company – Mwasalat.

Daily Trips Between Sharjah & Muscat

With the approval from Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Crown Prince and Deputy Ruler of Sharjah, daily trips will now operate from Al Jubail Station in Sharjah to Al Azaiba Bus Station in Oman. This move aims to streamline travel between the two emirates, facilitating a smoother and more accessible connection for residents and visitors alike.

In a parallel development, Mwasalat, Oman’s national transport company, resumed its bus service to the UAE in October of the previous year. The bus service initiates from Muscat, travels to Abu Dhabi, and returns via Al Ain, offering a convenient transportation option for those traversing between the two countries.

During the SEC meeting, another significant green light was granted for the launch of the Model Farmer’s Guide. This guide aligns with the emirate’s vision to promote healthy, substance-free food, encouraging community members to embark on sustainable agricultural projects. It also supports the establishment of entrepreneurs in the productive agriculture sector, acting as a reference for emerging individuals and entities interested in agricultural production.

Additionally, the council granted the waiver of 102 projects from government agency fees by 50% for a duration of two years. These projects, valued at Dhs1.086 million, span diverse economic activities across all cities and regions of the emirate. This fee relief applies specifically to projects funded by Sharjah SME (RUWAD), fostering economic growth and entrepreneurship in the region.

In essence, these initiatives underscore Sharjah’s commitment to enhancing connectivity, promoting sustainable agriculture, and supporting economic ventures, reflecting the emirate’s dedication to progress and prosperity.
