Transport timings for the holidays
EXTRA public transport will be laid on for Eid al Fitr and most parking in Dubai will be free, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has said.
All paid parking zones in Dubai will be free except for the Fish Market and multi-level parking.
Ahmed Mahboob, the authority’s customer service director, said: “The RTA will extend the working hours of the Dubai Metro during the Eid holiday and the service will start at 5.50am and continue to 1am.
During the holidays, the timing of public buses will be as follows - main stations (such as Gold Souq and Al Ghubaiba) will run 6am - midnight. Metro Feeder Bus Stations at Rashidiya, Mall of the Emirates, Ibn Battuta, Abu Hail, Burj Khalifa and Etisalat will run from 6am to 1am.” Some inter-city buses will run 24 hours a day such as the Sharjah to Bur Dubai service.
Vehicles testing and registration centres will be closed, as will customer service centres.
