Buses are a safe and affordable option for getting around Oman and operate across the Sultanate, as well as within Muscat. Mwasalat – a government owned company – is the leading public transport service in the country, offering inter-regional as well as inner-city travel. Aside from Mwasalat, several other transport operators – including Moon Travel and Al-Sumri Transport – provide long distance bus services, with most specialising in Muscat – Salalah trips. City bus tours, operated by Big Bus Tours, are also available and provide daily hop-on hop-off sightseeing tours around Muscat.
