By offering daily trips and allowing for significant baggage allowances, the service caters to the needs of both leisure and business travelers. Additionally, the inclusion of Shinas in the route adds convenience and accessibility for passengers traveling between the two cities.

Furthermore, the provision of multiple departure times throughout the day ensures flexibility for travelers, allowing them to choose a schedule that best suits their needs. This, coupled with reasonable fares, makes the bus service an attractive option for individuals looking for cost-effective and efficient travel between Sharjah and Muscat.

Overall, the launch of this new bus service represents a positive step towards improving transportation infrastructure and connectivity in the region, ultimately benefiting residents and visitors alike.
