The service connects all the major attractions around Yas Island, including Ferarri World, Yas Mall, Yas Waterworld and all of the island's hotels.

Another highlight of the racing event which is not be missed is the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix after-race concerts, which take place at the du Arena. Located just five minutes’ drive from the marina, one of the shuttle buses will be able to take you directly to the venue.
