Dubai Metro On-Time and Ahead of the Rest

Dubai Metro has achieved a more than 99 per cent punctuality rate, which is the highest of any driverless metro system in the world, reported the Gulf News today.

“We are very proud to say that the Dubai Metro punctuality rate is ahead of major driverless metro systems, including the North East Line in Singapore and the Docklands Light Rail in London. Our Metro has achieved a 99.69 per cent punctuality rate in the first six months of its operation from September 9 last year to March this year,” said Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
