Dubai Metro will run for 24 hours on New Year’s Eve
If you've ever spent New Year's Eve in Dubai then you'll know the biggest rule of the evening: do not take a car out anywhere. The roads are packed, some are closed and if you want to bring in the new year in the passenger seat of a motor vehicle then we definitely recommend leaving it at home.
However, the saviour of the night is the RTA, who has announced that Dubai Metro will be running all night on New Year’s Eve.
The Dubai Metro Green Line will run for 24 hours over Tuesday December 31 and Wednesday January 1. The Red Line stations will also run for the same period of time, but only between Rashidiya and DMCC stations.
In order to ease traffic congestion over the holiday period, extended hours will come in to play straight after Christmas, too.
On Friday December 27 and Saturday December 28, the Red Line will run between Rashidiya and DMCC stations from 5am to 3.30am and the Green Line will operate the same hours, but stopping at all stations.
The longer operating hours will continue into 2020 with the Red Line operating between Rashidiya and DMCC stations on Thursday January 2 and Friday January 3 from 5.30am to 3.30am and the same for the Green Line, but between all stations.
So happy holidays everyone!
