276 more metro trips to ease rush-hour crush

23-Oct-2016 :

Dubai: Congestion on Dubai Metro is likely to ease considerably with the introduction of short trips to and from some of the busiest stations along the Red Line, starting Sunday.

Apart from short trips, covering small segments on the Red Line, additional regular trips will operate on both the Red and Green lines throughout the week.

The upgrade in operations comes following complaints of congestion on the busy network, with commuters having to skip trains for lack of space, particularly during peak hours on the Red Line.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) yesterday announced that 276 more trips, including short trips, will be added to the network.

The upgrade will mean 154 additional trips run on the Red Line and 122 on the Green Line throughout the week.
