How the Dubai Metro's Going to Change in 2014
We heart the Dubai Metro! Super-quick and efficient, it's always helped us beat traffic. And it's only getting better in 2014. Early birds have long suffered on the weekends from the Metro’s late starts (opening time is 1pm on Fridays) but that's under review for change in the coming year.
Also, the sometimes nagging background music on the train will be stopped in 2014.
The final space for improvement is opening new stations. The Metro has yet to announce any definite plans but it has made clear that it is looking into extending the Red Line to reach the Expo 2020 site. There are also plans to open up two new lines on the Green Line.
See you on the Metro!
Inaugurated on 9 September 2009, the Dubai Metro has rapidly risen to become a mainstay in the city. It has served 300 million passengers since it was first built, and served over 500,000 people on the day after it was announced that Dubai won the 2020 Expo.
