A total of 346.5 million passengers used public transport in Dubai last year, Mattar Al Tayer, chairman and executive director of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced. The passenger figures compared with 332 million passengers lifted in 2010, a 4.3 percent rise, according to the figures released by the RTA's statistics section.
Rasul Syed Mirza Ghalib, the principal of the school in Al Nahda area, said the driver had switched on the ignition so that he could cool off the bus with the air conditioning, not realising that the vehicle was in gear. The bus lurched back and hit the children, he said.
The bus driver said he was unaware his bus was in gear when he started it, and it moved forward immediately, which left him no time to brake and caused him to hit the two children who were standing in front of the bus, Arabic daily Emarat Al Youm reported.
