RTA decides to resume public transport with a number of preventive measures to ensure safety.

Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the metro, public buses and taxi services will start work as normal on Sunday, April 26. This news comes after Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management’s decision to ease restrictions on public movement across the city.

A range of preventive measures has been taken to ensure the health of passengers and drivers – the RTA will fix 170,000 stickers in various means of public transportation. In addition, all passengers and RTA staff must wear face masks. Any violations will face penalties.

Starting on Sunday, 26 April, Dubai Metro resumes its daily journeys between 07:00 AM and 11:00 PM Saturday to Thursday, and between 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM every Friday. It applies to both the red and green lines. Also, buses making stops at hospitals will continue to operate 24 hours a day.  

Every taxi will have to keep on going regulations, including the number of riders up to two. Passengers must seat in the back seat, and the dividers separating the driver and passengers will remain. All metros, buses and taxis will be sanitized daily.

The RTA also confirmed the reinstatement of paid parking in the city. Public parking was free of charge during the sterilization programme, but now, it will continue as a paid service from 08:00 AM to 06:00 PM and 08:00 PM to midnight.
