The metro trains will operate from 8:00am to 2:00pm from April 5 and the passengers will be able to enjoy the modern service for more time, reports BSS.

Currently, the metro rail services are available from 8:30am to 12:30pm, Managing Director of Dhaka Mass Transit Company Ltd MAN Siddique said at a press conference at DMTCL office on Thursday.

He said initially, the metro rail service was available for four hours daily - from 8:00am to noon - in the beginning and the time was increased depending on how the passengers get habituated to the new mode of public transport.

Getting good experiences, the DMTCL has decided to increase operational time to 2pm instead of 1230pm from April 5, the managing director said.
