The Metro’s Red Line will now start at 5 am instead of 5.30 am, while the Green Line will be in operation from 5.30am instead of 5.50am. The Dubai Tram will operate from 6 am to 1 am Sunday to Thursday, and 9 am to 1 am on Friday.
The Express Metro service has also been improved with trains now being deployed in six stations – Rashidiya, Rigga, Emirates Towers, First Gulf Bank, Jumeirah Lakes Towers and the UAE Money Exchange. The service will start at 5 am from the aforementioned stations, alongside the normal Red Line service.
“The move is intended to upgrade services, help people reach their destination faster and ease congestion at first metro services at all stations,”
– Mohammed Al Mudharreb, director of rail operations at RTA’s Rail Agency.
