Dubai transport officials: Early start on Fridays for Metro, change in Tram services
27 September, 2015
Dubai Metro will start running earlier on Fridays as of next month. From 2 October, services will start at 10am instead of 1pm, the Roads and Transport Authority said, giving travellers better access to tourist, commercial and residential areas. Changes will also be introduced for the Dubai Tram. The Marina Loop service that covers four stations – Jumeirah Beach Residence 1 and 2, JLT and Dubai Marina Mall – will be discontinued. Abdullah Al Ali, chief executive of the RTA Rail Agency, said the changes were introduced as a result of a study on public transport users’ preferences carried out between December last year and May.
