Read on to acquaint yourself with the new and updated names of all the Dubai Metro Stations to ensure smooth travels.
The Dubai Metro was kickstarted on September 9, 2009, as one of the most ambitious projects of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). And today, more than a decade after its beginning, it’s safe to say that it has been a smashing success. A record 1.7 million users ride on the Metro each day, and it is considered one of the safest, cleanest, and most accessible modes of public transport in the world.
The Dubai Metro has a total of 47 stations distributed across 2 lines; Red and Green. However, the names of these stations have seen frequent changes in the past years, which might lead to some confusion on the part of new Metro users or those who are using the Metro after a short or long break.
