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 Metro will double its number of trains when seven new stations open next month, which transport official say will cut travel times for rush-hour commuters by almost half. The number of trains on the Red Line will be increased to between 24 and 26 from 12 when the new stations are added to the system’s only operating line on April 25, said Ramadan Abdullah, who heads rail operations for the Roads and Transport Authority’s Rail Agency.
