Dubai to Sharjah by car

Given the tediously long travel time by air, despite the cities being just 28 kilometres apart from each other, it is evident that the best method to travel to Sharjah from Dubai is by road, which would take less than 30 minutes.

While public transport options are available, getting to Sharjah from Dubai is the cheapest via road. The fastest route is through the Sheikh Zayed Rd/E11.

Dubai to Sharjah by bus

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), in coordination with Sharjah’s Roads and Transport Authority, operates two intercity bus routes between the emirates whose buses run on dedicated lanes — meaning commuters won’t be stuck in Dubai-Sharjah traffic. For inter-emirate bus commuters, travel time between Dubai and Sharjah will be as short as 12 minutes.

The first is route E306. Buses on this route will commence the journey from Al Ghubaiba Bus Depot, Dubai, and end at Al Jubail Bus Station in Sharjah via Al Mamzar, at a frequency of 20 minutes. Six double-decker buses will be deployed on this route.

The second is route E307, which will also be served by six double-decker buses. Buses will start from Deira City Centre Bus Station, Dubai, and head to Al Jubail Bus Station, Sharjah, via Al Ittihad Road. The service frequency will be 20 minutes.

Dubai to Sharjah by metro

There are no metro services running between Dubai and Sharjah. You can catch a metro close to the Sharjah border, and take a bus to Sharjah.

Dubai to Sharjah COVID-19 restrictions

Sharjah doesn’t have any COVID-19 entry restrictions for domestic visitors from Dubai arriving in Sharjah through rail or road.

However, international entry rules are applicable to passengers arriving via flight, since they land In Sharjah after transiting in a foreign country:

  1. Those who are vaccinated against COVID-19, must present the vaccination certificate containing a QR code. They are not required to present a negative result of RT-PCR test for COVID-19 at the airport of departure.
  2. Those who are not vaccinated against COVID-19, can either present a valid, negative result of an RT-PCR test conducted within 48 hours before arrival, or present a recovery certificate (containing a QR code) from COVID-19 issued within 30 days before departure, if they were previously infected with the virus.
