After two-and-a-half years of operation, Metro officials are looking at ways to improve the Dh28 billion system. Transport chiefs are considering opening both the Green and Red lines earlier on Fridays next year and setting up an out-of-hours shuttle to the airport, said Ahmad Al Hammadi, the chief executive of the Roads and Transport Authority's rail agency.
"The Jebel Ali Station is mainly intended to serve Jebel Ali area and in particular the Jafza as well as Jebel Ali Port," Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA, said. Jebel Ali houses around 6,600 companies employing more than 129,000 people.
“This change comes in response to the public desire to have the metro service hours extended on the occasion of the New Year which will be marked by a variety of activities, including the massive fireworks display at Burj Khalifa; which is set to attract thousands of visitors,” said Adnan Al Hamadi, CEO of RTA Rail Agency.
H.E. Al Tayer accompanied H.E. Pierre Mongin and the accompanying delegation in a tour on Dubai Metro starting from Khalid bin Al Waleed Station to Al Rashidiya Station during which he briefed the visitor on the Dubai Metro and its vital role in the daily travel of residents and visitors.
News of Dubai Metro opening last year was the reason for Arif Khan's decision to continue living in the UAE. Now, he does not ride it any more. Khan, a Pakistani national, stopped riding the Metro when he had to move to Al Ghusais with his family in March.
