2.1 million plus commuters used public transport in Dubai on NYE


Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed that 2,166,821 riders used its public transport, shared mobility means and taxis during the New Year’s Eve celebrations in the city.

The figure reflects a 33% rise from last year’s number, which saw 1,632,552 riders. 

Officials said riders commuted safely to areas hosting New Year’s Eve celebrations areas, thanks to the comprehensive plan mapped out by RTA in collaboration with the Executive Committee for Securing International and Local Events in Dubai.

The metro service continued around-the-clock and more than 200 buses were deployed to lift riders from celebrations locations to the vehicles parking areas designated for the event.
