As Dubai gears up for New Year’s Eve festivities, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announces extended hours for the Dubai Metro and Tram. This move aims to provide convenient transportation options and alleviate traffic congestion during the celebrations.

Non-Stop Operation:

The Dubai Metro will run continuously from 8 am on December 31 until the end of January 1, offering a 40-hour non-stop service. Simultaneously, the Dubai Tram will operate from 9 am on December 31 until 1 am on January 2, providing seamless connectivity for revelers.

To further enhance public transportation, the RTA plans to deploy 230 buses free of charge to the public. This initiative seeks to make commuting more accessible and hassle-free for residents and visitors.

CEO’s Commitment to Convenience:

Abdullah Yousif Al Ali, CEO of RTA, expresses the authority’s dedication to enhancing Dubai’s transportation infrastructure. The RTA aims to ensure a smooth and joyful New Year celebration for all through extended services, additional parking, and free bus rides.

In addition to public transport, regular taxi services will continue to operate during the New Year’s Eve period, offering an alternative and convenient mode of transportation.

Parking Solutions for a Stress-Free Experience:

The RTA has arranged approximately 900 additional parking spaces in Al Wasl and Al Jafiliya to accommodate the influx of vehicles. 

These extra facilities aim to provide attendees with secure and convenient parking options during the celebrations.

Guiding the Way with Road Signs:

The RTA has strategically implemented comprehensive signage systems to guide commuters and revelers. These signs direct traffic, indicate parking locations, and highlight bus pick-up points, ensuring smooth transportation during the festivities.

Real-Time Information with ITS Signage:

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) signage and variable message boards will provide real-time information about road closures, alternative routes, and open pathways. 

This technological approach aims to enhance communication and inform the public throughout the celebrations.

Ensuring a Smooth Entry into 2024:

As Dubai welcomes 2024, the RTA leaves no stone unturned in assuring a smooth and hassle-free transportation experience.
