Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority on Thursday announced Metro timings will be restored to normal following the completion of the National Sterilisation Programme to counter the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As per the revised schedule, trains on the Green Line will now run from 5.30am until 12 midnight from Saturday to Wednesday, 5.30am to 1am (the next morning) on Thursdays, and 10am to 1am (the following morning) on Fridays.

Trains on the Red Line will run from 5am to 12 midnight from Saturday to Wednesday, and 5am to 1am (the next morning) on Thursdays, and 10am to 1am (the next day) on Fridays.

After suspending all public transport services for a brief period, the Dubai Metro had been following a curtailed timetable in line with the timings of the National Sterilisation Drive. 

The UAE yesterday announced the successful completion of the country-wide disinfection programme, lifting all night-time restrictions on the movement of residents.

Bus services

Dubai bus services are fully operational from 4am to 1am (the following day). Intercity buses, however, are suspended until further notice, the RTA said. Route C01 will be in operation round the clock.

Marine services

Dubai marine services have resumed their daily operations through Dubai abra in four areas only (Aljaddad, Dubai festival city, Creek and Marina), whereas other marine transport services (Dubai ferry, Dubai water taxi, Dubai water bus) are suspended until further notice.

All passengers are required to wear face masks at all times and adhere to safety precautions and physical distancing while commuting.
