|Notes from a Traveller August 2010: I waited on Airport Road in Abu Dhabi at a standard city bus stop. I flagged the bus down with my flashlight (it was evening) in case driver wasn't expecting to stop there. It was a coach rather than a city bus. 3 Dirhams. Took about an hour from where I got the bus, which stopped at Terminal 2 and then Terminal 3.|
