How to get to Grand Mosque by bus

Hello, i am located around Khalidiya Mall and would like to find out which buses i can take to the Shaikh Zayed Grand Mosque to make it on time for 10 am & 11 am tours. I am comfortable with walking a bit to and from the bus stop.

I think bus No 44 should be the best one.

Hi, thank you for your response. I am staying near Khalidiyah Mall which is at 26th and 7th Street (Khalidiyah Street). I already found those maps myself however I do not find them very helpful. I was looking at route 54 but was not certain and hoped someone else is familiar with this bus route. That one has Grand Mosque stop but its on the east side of the mosque.

Taxis in the UAE are quite cheap. And the drivers usually have great stories to tell. My last taxi driver was from Nepal.

If you have enough time to spend on the buses and road, please go ahead with bus option.

Otherwise taxis are the best option. It is not very expensive in Abu Dhabi.

Bus service 32 connects Zayed First Street (7th Street) with Grand Mosque.

Alternatively, use bus services 5, 7, 8 or 32 to Muroor Rd (4th Street) and transfer to Regional bus services 100, 102, 110, 115, 120, 160, 162, 163, 400, 401, 402, 403, 404, 405, or 406.

Does bus 32 from Main Bus Terminal stop near Hilton Capital Grand (former Rocco Forte hotel)?

Thank you!

The bus stop closest to Hilton Capital Grand is Zayed Sport City along 4th Street.

The walking distance is about 100 metres

Bus services at the stop are 32, 40, 44, 52, 54, and Regional buses.

@thqu60.

Almost all buses use the route behind the Hilton Capital Grand hotel.

You can get down at the stop of Zayed sports city or Aiprot Garden stop, and walk a little.

@JeyaB

Actually, all bus services mentioned above use the Zayed Sport City bus stop (unless the driver has his own route interprtation). the inbound bus top has shifted to the parking lot into the Zayed Stadium parking lot.

The bus stops on Airport Street are not used and will be removed (eventually).

@thqu60: from where to where do you intend to travel?

Thank you u u and JeyaB for your answers!

I will be arriving by bus from Dubai to Abu Dhabi and will get on any buses you listed above from the bus station to Hilton. Which stop do you recommend from getting off and walking to the hotel? Zayed Sports City stop or Airport Garden stop?
