Metro rail to remain closed tomorrow and Friday

Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) authorities today (April 10) said Metro rail will remain closed tomorrow (Thursday), and Friday the day after Eid-ul Fitr.

Deputy Manager of DMTCL Nazmul Islam Bhuiyan confirmed the matter

He said that as announced earlier, metro rail will remain closed on Eid. It was closed last year on Eid too.

Nazmul Islam Bhuiyan said, Thursday is the Eid holiday and Friday is the weekly holiday and so metro rail will be closed for two days. It will resume operations on Saturday as per schedule.

On the first day of the holy month of Ramadan, 240,000 to 245,000 people would travel by metro rail daily on average. This was around 295,000 before Ramadan. From 16 Ramadan the metro rail service was extended by one hour and the number of commuters increased.
