The Dubai Metro's operational hours on Friday will start at 10 am (instead of 1 pm) as of October 2.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) also intends to stop the Marina Loop service of the Dubai Tram offering semi-circular service at the JBR, Marina.
Abdullah Yousef Al Ali, CEO of RTA Rail Agency said: "We have commissioned studies about the revised operational time of the metro service on Friday where we have perceived a necessity for starting the service as early as 10 am, especially that the metro links key areas in Dubai Emirate including a host of tourist, commercial and residential districts."
He added: "We have stopped the Semi-Circular Marina Loop service of the Dubai Tram at the JBR, Marina, which covers four stations: Jumeirah Beach Residence (1), Jumeirah Beach Residence (2), JLT and Dubai Marina Mall."   Ali Ali stated that the study stated that abolishing this service would bring about a lot of positives such as slashing the total transit time from 54 minutes to 45 minutes, and improving the service frequency to 8 minutes.
