The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced the timing of various services to be delivered during Eid Al-Adha holiday at Customer Service Centers, paid parking zones, public buses, Dubai Metro, marine transit modes, driving schools and institutes, and vehicles testing and registration centers.
The Traffic Department of RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency launched an initiative during which it distributed Iftar meals and awareness leaflets to truck drivers at the Vegetable and Fruit Market in Dubai in cooperation with the Dubai Youth Hostel out of the Authority’s keenness to communicate with all segments of the society on all occasions and at all times.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has winded up a vehicular traffic movement plan during Eid al-Fitr holiday to cope with the needs of all community members, provide best-in-class services and enable the public to avail themselves of private/public transit means in a streamlined and hassle-free manner.
Majority of the respondents (71 per cent) who took part in the poll, believe that Dubai never sleeps so why should the Metro stop running even at odd hours. On the other hand, 26 per cent say that there is no pressing need for the Metro to run all the time, whereas a 3 per cent of the participants were not sure about the hours of operation.
Dubai Metro is becoming a favourite commuting option every passing day with more than a million commuters using the service during the Eid holidays. "We are very pleased with the response from the commuters as [the] number of passengers using the Metro has constantly been increasing," said Ramadan Abdullah, Director of Rail Operations at the Rail Agency of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). He said the extended hours also attract more commuters.
