Bahrain Bus network goes cashless

You must have a GO Card to use any of the buses

Bahrain Bus network goes cashless

The bus network in Bahrain is now cashless, it has been announced.

Anyone using the public transport system must purchase a GO Card and ensure it is topped up.

The cards cost 500 fils, and you can top up the card with up to BHD50. Each journey will cost 250 fils.

Plus, GO Cards have a 600 fils daily cap, meaning you can take as many buses as you want for that price once you hit the limit.

You can buy GO Cards from the Manama, Muharraq or Isa Town main bus stations, or from ticket machines inside these venues. There is also a ticket machine at the airport.

Alternatively, you can also buy a GO card from the bus driver.

The change was implemented on June 1.

Bahrain Bus has also announced a number of timetable changes for the month.

All buses will be running on a Saturday timetable until 11pm from Sunday to Wednesday, and a Saturday timetable with the normal finishing time on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The service 22 will now terminate at Hidd Lulu, and the service X6 at Hidd Flyover.
