Commuters in the capital Dhaka benefit from modern public transport Metro Rail. You can easily go from one end of Dhaka to the other quickly. Therefore, the demand for this public transport is high among the passengers. The timings are also extended based on passenger demand. Currently the Metro Rail is running from morning to night six days a week and a weekly closure on Friday.

Recently, commuters want to get Metro Rail facility even on holidays, i.e., Fridays. Due to this, the management organization Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) has decided to start the Metro Rail on Friday.

According to DMTCL sources, initial discussions have been held regarding Metro Rail operation on Fridays like other days from July.

When asked about this, DMTCL joint secretary Mohammad Abdur Rauf told the media, “I have no idea about this. Maybe after a few days, our Managing Director MAN Siddique Sir will hold a press conference and inform – if any such decision is made.”

Less peak hour headway time

Headway time (waiting time between two trains) during morning-evening peak hours is said to be reduced as passenger pressure increases. It may come into force in June. In this, the headway time can be reduced to 5 minutes, which is currently 8 minutes.

Meanwhile, DMTCL will soon give a recruitment notice to increase the manpower in Metro Rail. However, in this case, not permanent, contractual appointment is likely to be made.
