Dubai Metro Timing May Change

Dubai Metro will be closed at midnight for maintenance, but a Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) official said timings may change based on passenger feedback, which has been mixed.   Some complain that the malls close late and mall officials say there will be sufficient free parking available. 

During Ramadan the metro will be closed from 12 am midnight to 6 am and 11 pm to 6 am between Saturday and Thursday, then from 12 am midnight to 2 pm Friday – for maintenance reasons. Director of Marketing and Corporate Communications Department, RTA said “When you look at the number of passengers expected to use the metro on a daily basis, which is around 100,000, and the fact that the metro is a fully automated system, the maintenance has to go on.”
