Heading out for New Year’s Eve celebrations in Dubai? Take the public transport — both the Dubai Metro and Tram will run for an extended period anyway.
These two major transport services will run non-stop for 40 hours from December 31, a senior official of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) said on Wednesday.
Here are the timings:
Dubai Metro: From 8 AM (December 31) until the end of January 1.
Dubai Tram: From 9AM (December 31) until 1AM January 2
The RTA is also planning to add a fleet of 230 buses that will be made available to the public free of charge.
Abdullah Yousif Al Ali, CEO of RTA, said that with extended Metro and tram services, additional parking spaces, and free bus rides, the authority seeks to provide the public with convenient transport options and minimise traffic congestion.
