In a move to accommodate the increased travel demand during the upcoming Eid Al Adha holidays, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) of Dubai has announced extended metro timings. The authority made the announcement via Twitter, stating that the working hours of the Dubai Metro will be extended until 1am the following day.
The extended timings will be in effect from Friday, June 23, until Sunday, July 2, 2023. This decision aims to provide residents and visitors with greater flexibility and convenience in commuting during the festive period. With the extended operating hours, people can enjoy their celebrations and activities late into the night while ensuring a reliable and efficient transportation option.
The Dubai Metro, known for its extensive network and modern infrastructure, is a popular mode of transportation for both residents and tourists. By extending the timings, the RTA intends to cater to the increased passenger demand, allowing individuals to travel comfortably and easily throughout Dubai during the Eid Al Adha holidays.
Eid Al Adha, also known as the Festival of Sacrifice, is an important religious celebration for Muslims worldwide. During this holiday, people come together with family and friends to commemorate Prophet Ibrahim's willingness to sacrifice his son and engage in acts of charity, prayer, and feasting.
