Now, commuters can travel from Uttara North Station to Pallabi, Pallabi to Uttara, and Agargaon to Pallabi, said Managing Director (MD) of Dhaka Mass Transit Company Limited (DMTCL) MAN Siddique.
Besides, a new timing has been set for metro rail as it will run from 8:30am to 12:30pm instead of 8:00am to 12:00pm, considering the demand of the passengers.
The gates were opened at 8:00am for purchasing tickets, he said.
