Default Travel time-Bur Dubai to Arabian Ranches

Hi all,

I am arriving next week, the family about a fortnight later. We will initially be staying in Bur Dubai until the company can find better accommodation.

The kids will be going to school at JESS Arabian Ranches. Could anyone please advise me of the likely travelling time from Bur Dubai to Arabian Ranches in the morning, and also for the return in the afternoon?

Many thanks,

Anthony.

It depends on the traffic, but likely to take up to an hour as most of the traffic travels in that direction each morning and opposite at night

not a journey I would like to do forever but seeing as it is only temporary I am sure it will be ok. Well done on getting the children into Jess I hear it is difficult to get into these days.

Thanks everyone, that great. We had been fed a story about it being 1 1/2 to 2 hour journey each way! Sheesh, some guys like to scare us newbies

Yeh probably an hour. maybe more.
I used to live in Bur Dubai and it would take me 20-30 minutes just to get to my office on SZR.

I recall back in the day, most people would go, "What's JESS?"
