Timetables of major government operated (or commissioned) national-level public transport services (specifically bus and train). The focus here is on national level services (not those which operate only at a municipal or city level and which are not controlled or regulated by the national government). A 'yes' in any question will refer to both types of transport. However, if there is no national level service operated or regulated by the government for a given type of transport (for instance busses), then this type is ignored in this data category. Data submitted in this category should meet the following minimum criteria:

  • Time of operating
  • Time of leaving first station and arriving to the last station
  • Updated at least once a year

Data Location



The Ministry of Transportation has a link to a webpage that provides bus timetables and routes. This information is available both in Arabic and English (https://www.bahrain.bh/pubportal/wps/portal/!ut/p/c5/hY5JDoJAFETP4gn-Z2rYfiBKJ3SLDApsSCcaI5EhhLTK6cUDqFXLyqsqqGF1r_Ttqubb0Ks7lFCzxjEYN8jG3b4gC3kqyArM0MKCrXnFmmBHke3GiF649dD0HcYPGCJy5w99ghLtJmu9UbzmMl4CnbfL4SVy_hQhN2V-WqSMk_MxLXyipFeTXpn60_pr85PjFxGCjIbuApmaoILa_frPcCGHyoexK_QYPSTRZvMGvWOP0A!!/dl3/d3/L0lHSkovd0RNQU5rQUVnQSEhL1lCZncvZW4!/ ). Given the size of Bahrain, no trains exist. The website and the data it contains are are the Ministry's property, thus data is considered non-open.
