In 2019, a total of 594 million riders in Dubai used public and shared transport.

Of those, 202.98 million riders used the Dubai Metro’s Red and Green Lines.

After every journey when the train reaches the terminal stations, and several times a day, a team of cleaners wipe down the surfaces including the grab-handles and stanchions, besides spraying the seats with disinfectants.

At the various metro stations, there are separate teams of cleaners who clean and disinfect surfaces where multiple people are likely to make physical contact with such as the ticket vending machines.

Apart from the daily multiple cleanup operations in every metro station and train, there is an additional deep cleaning of every train that takes place when the train is not in service.

It includes a thorough cleaning of its interiors and the exterior surface.

A recent video by Dubai’s Emirates airline also showed how it had intensified the disinfection of all cabins as a precaution against the Covid-19 outbreak.
