about 4 years ago • Community Manager

Dubai Metro services on both Red and Green Lines will start from 10am this Friday for the convenience of Gitex Shopper visitors, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced.
The service for the day will be available from 10am to 1am the following day.
Red Line trains will run at a frequency of six to eight minutes, while Green Line trains will operate at a headway of eight minutes.
An RTA official told Gulf News that the extension is only for this Friday (April 25). Normally, the Metro usually operates from 1pm to 1am on Fridays.

The service will be complemented with bus services as well as additional taxis deployed at the Gitex venue, the Dubai World Trade Centre, from Wednesday to Saturday.
The RTA anticipates about 3,000 to 4,000 taxi trips to be made daily during the event, and a limo service will also be available.

Every week, from Sunday to Wednesday, the Metro operates from 5.30am to midnight, with trains running every seven minutes during morning peak hours and every three-and-a-half minutes during evening peak hours. The trains run on the same timings on Saturdays as well but at an-off peak headway of eight minutes.
Every Thursday, the trains operate between 5.30am to 1am the following day. The RTA operates two express trains at 5.30am and 5.40am from Saturday to Thursday.
