There is also a bus (bus nr E101, click here for map) direction Abu Dhabi from the bus station Ibn Battuta. This bus station is near the shopping center Ibn Battuta and the same named metro station. This station is a lot quieter than the Al Garhoud station because it is located on the edge of Dubai far from the working-class districts of Dubai. The buses to Abu Dhabi leave every 20 to 30 minutes, the same money for the return journey. A return ticket Dubai Abu Dhabi by bus costs about 10 to 15 dollar per person, if you consider that this ride is about 200 km then that is very cheap.
