I’m not really sure how to spell this in Arabic so my transliteration could be off.

Dubaabs are mini vans which I guess would be the equivalent (or closest thing to) a bus service.

The route is marked on the back of the van in green and white. (and the front too I think)


You can board a dubaab anywhere, there are no designated stops (to my knowledge). Just flag one down.


The vans drive around with their right siding doors open.


The fare is typically about 20-40 riyals (~ 10 – 20 cents).



Be ware of pick pockets on these as I have heard a few stories of people getting their money stolen.
