The media spokesman for the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), Nasser Al-Rahamneh, revealed in previous statements to Roya that the BRT will operate in the first phase after infrastructure works have been completed, and will work to transport passengers during that stage.

Rahamneh further clarified details of the first route, which will witness trial operations wherein passengers will be transported from the Sweileh passenger station to the external patrols signal, Queen Rania Al Abdullah Street, Sports City Roundabout, Wadi Saqra, Sharif Nasser bin Jameel Street, Fifth Circle, Wadi Abdoun, all the way to Museum station in Ras al-Ain.

Rahamneh indicated that work in the other phases is in full swing, in order to fully operate the BRT fully on schedule.
