Dubai Metro and buses to resume service on Sunday April 26

Dubai Metro is to start running again from Sunday April 26 following the partial lifting of the restriction of movement across Dubai.

Effective from Friday April 24, Dubai residents are now permitted to leave the house for essential items like food and medicine without a permit between the hours of 6am and 10pm.

And from Sunday April 26, public transport resumes.

The metro will run from Saturday to Thursday from 7am to 11pm, and on a Friday from 10am to 11pm. If you are taking the metro you’ll need to wear a face mask at all times, and stick to social distancing, too.

On the Red Line the final metro from Al Rashidiya Station to UAE Exchange station will be 9.51pm Saturday to Thursday and 9.55pm on Fridays. The final metro from UAE Exchange to Al Rashidiya will also be 9.51pm Saturday to Thursday and 9.55pm on Fridays.

On the Green Line the final metro from Etisalat Station to Creek Station is 10.20pm every day of the week, while the final metro from Creek Station to Etisalat Station will be 10.21pm Saturday to Thursday and 10.25pm on Fridays.

Meanwhile buses will also be resuming normal service from Sunday April 26, running from 6am until 10pm, with essential trips to hospitals from 10pm until 6am. Intercity buses are suspended until further notice.

And if you’re looking to drive, public parking fees return to normal from Sunday April 26, too. Parking fees across Dubai will run from 8am until 6pm and then again from 8pm until midnight.

Taxi fees will also return to normal – with passengers required to wear masks and sit in the back seat.

There will also be a clear signage system in place in public transport and other public spaces aimed at raising awareness about essential health and safety procedures to combat the outbreak of COVID-19.

The signage uses icons and colours to educate the public about the importance of preventive practices, such as wearing masks and observing physical distancing. It also seeks to promote good practices such as wearing gloves, using sterilisers and handwashing.

The RTA is also fixing 170,000 stickers bearing the new icons on Dubai Metro, public buses, taxis, limousines and customer happiness centres.
