Since January 2018 the RAK Shuttle Bus connects Ras al Khaimah (or to be more precise: the hotels in RAK) with the Dubai Airport. There are three buses that service the route several times a day. The one way ticket costs AED 20.
As for now the buses from DXB serve all hotels as needed, while for the buses to DXB one bus serves the hotels in the city, one serves Mina al Arab and Al Hamra and one Marjan Island, so that the buses reach DXB fairly quickly.
Note: The schedule might change, as there are plans to add more connections to the schedule.
See www.rakshuttle.com for the schedule, further information and for booking your ticket.
The complimentary ferry boat service for Al Hamra Village Residents connects the Al Hamra Marina to the Al Hamra Golf Club. The ferry operates “on call”. So you have to call or use the buzzer at the stops to ask for the ferry.
The ferry operation is managed through the Al Hamra Marina & Yacht Club, so if you don’t want to wait at the buzzer, you might also try to call the ferry using their duty phone
+971 50 404 1803
The operation times of the ferry are:
- Sunday to Wednesday: 12:00 to 15:00 and 18:30 to 23:30
- Thursday to Saturday: 12:30 to 14:30 and 18:30 to 00:30
Note: The ferry is intended only for Al Hamra Village Residents and hotel guests. So at some point they might start to ask you for your Al Hamra VIP Card to use the ferry.
