Dubai Metro will run for 24 hours on New Year’s Eve

The RTA has announced that Dubai Metro will be running all night on New Year’s Eve.

So, if you’re planning on heading out to one of Dubai’s spectacular New Year’s Eve parties, leave the car at home and catch a train.

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.

Dubai International Airport is expecting over five million passengers to pass through during the peak travel period, which starts on Thursday December 19 until Monday January 6 2020.

As such, it has suggested that passengers check-in online during this period and also aim to arrive at the airport at least three-four hours before their flight.

To help ease congestion, Dubai Police will be providing detours for traffic across all roads leading to the airport.

Safe and happy travels everyone.
