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 assessment was performed with data for the National Ferries Company data; the NFC is a government-owned company for sea transport between major cities in Oman. The data was marked as not up-to-date as the website explicitly states: "Schedule is subject to change, for latest schedule & updates or any queries kindly contact NFC – Call Centre during office office hours on 800 72 000 or (968) 98111162." Thus, there is no tangible reason to consider that the website provides timely and up-to-date information. Data is available as HTML tables only (static webpages per route). No information was identified regarding fares though.

The other systematic public transportation system available in Oman operated by the government is through the buses of the government-owned Oman National Transport Company. The website of ONTC ( https://www.ontcoman.com/ ) does not provide actual information on fares and routes (https://www.ontcoman.com/booking.php is under construction at the time of review). The available information is on the different services the ONTC provides (see https://www.ontcoman.com/services.php).
