The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is introducing a change in the opening hours of Dubai Metro red line, on Fridays only, commencing Friday, January 31.
This will include six more consecutive Fridays: February 7, 14, 21, and 28, and March 6 and 13. On these dates, the Metro service on the red line will start at 2pm and continue up to 1am (of the following day). Metro timing will revert to normal operational hours on March 14, 2020.
Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes, CEO of Rail Agency, RTA, called on the public to use alternative transport modes and recommended them to plan their journeys in advance.
'The change of operational timing of the Dubai Metro red line on the above-mentioned dates is dictated by the need to carry operational tests for the integration of the systems of Route 2020 and ensure the optimal operation of the network. It will also ensure that the regular service on those days is not disrupted,' said Younes.
