Default Public transport Dubai to Abu Dhabi

Mrs O has a friend who doesn't drive in Dubai planning to make a visit to AD. Aside of taxis, are there any other public transport options, like a good luxury coach service?

There is a coach service about every 40 mins from the main bus station in Bur Dubai, Al Ghubaiba, that goes to the Municipality bus station in Ab Dabs.

I think you can also get a mini bus service which is faster, but costs a little more - ask at Al Ghubaiba.

Better to avoid the mini buses as they are not as comfortable as the larger buses/coaches.

I took the bus recently and have to say it wasn't that bad and only cost AED25...go for the red RTA buses, they are new and there's plenty of leg room.
