Metro rail to run on new schedule from today

Metro rail will run following new schedule from today, Wednesday (June 19).

The peak and off-peak hours of metro rail are being changed following the new office hours announced by the government.

Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) Managing Director MAN Siddique confirmed the matter recently.

He said that on June 6, the government announced that the office schedule has been changed from 9am to 5pm and this schedule will be effective from June 19 after Eid.

For this reason, the peak and off-peak hours of metro rail have been changed, said the DMTCL official.

Although there is no change in the time of morning, the metro rail operation schedule has been changed from afternoon. In new schedule, metro rail will run from Uttara North to Motijheel every 8 minutes during peak hours from 2:25pm to 8:32pm. And from 8:33pm to 9pm, metro rail will run every 10 minutes during special off-peak hours and will run every 12 minutes from 9pm to 9:40pm in the last hour.

The schedule has also changed on public holidays. Metro trains will depart every 15 minutes instead of 12 minutes every morning on holidays without Saturdays. It will follow the previous time after noon.
