The CEO of RTA, Abdullah Yousif Al Ali, revealed on Wednesday that both the Dubai Metro and Tram will operate non-stop for an impressive 40 hours starting December 31.

This strategic initiative aims to provide the public convenient transport options, minimizing traffic congestion during one of the city’s most anticipated celebrations.

Road signs strategically placed throughout the city will direct traffic, indicating parking locations and bus pick-up points.

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

This multi-faceted approach is designed to create a seamless transportation experience, ensuring that residents and visitors can move around the city efficiently and without unnecessary delays.

The RTA’s commitment to convenience is further highlighted by the provision of free bus rides during the New Year’s Eve period.

As Dubai gears up for the much-anticipated countdown, the RTA’s efforts extend beyond merely facilitating transport.

The authority is actively contributing to the overall success of the celebration, fostering an atmosphere of joy and excitement.

By addressing potential traffic bottlenecks, providing additional parking spaces, and disseminating real-time information, the RTA aims to enhance the overall experience for those ringing in the New Year in the dynamic city.

In closing, Al Ali stated, “Through these measures, the RTA continues to demonstrate its commitment to enhancing Dubai’s transportation infrastructure and ensuring the well-being of its citizens and guests.”

As the clock ticks down to 2024, Dubai residents and visitors can rest assured that the RTA is leaving no stone unturned to guarantee a smooth and memorable New Year’s Eve celebration.
