What's the distance between Jebel Ali and Sharjah and how long does it take to commute?
From Jebel Ali to Sharjah through Emirates Road -the fastest route- it would take you approximately 55-80 minutes if you were lucky to have no accidents/traffic jams available en route.
It takes me 40 minutes from Jumeirah to Sharjah; which is around 25 minutes away from Jebel Ali.
Also, it depends which hour is your journey.
For instance, Sharjah-Dubai(morning) and Dubai-Sharjah(afternoon/evening) are the heaviest traffic jams.
If you can go in the opposite direction during the same timings, then, you're most probably on the safer side.
Yes, you will find bus shuttles from Jebel Ali to Sharjah: public ones and private ones too.
* Note: Keep in mind that Jebel Ali is located in the Emirate of Dubai's west border, and Sharjah is another Emirate bordering Dubai on it's east border. http://www.internationaldestinations.com.au/_data/docs/maps/Uae.gif
