The RTA has confirmed that, as per last year, the tram will be operating throughout the night on New Year’s Eve to enable everyone to travel home from the new year celebrations.
Therefore, once the tram starts operations on the morning of 31 December it will not stop running until 1 AM on 2 January.
They have also confirmed that the same will happen with the Dubai Metro which will operate throughout the night of 31st December. The Metro will stop operating on midnight between the 1st and 2NFL of January which are the end of service normal operating hours.
The RTA are trying to encourage people to use public transport over New Year to save the gridlock that often happened in the past.
They will also be free parking available on 1 January except at the fish market car park.
