Dubai is all set to open two brand new metro stations in the emirate on June 1.
According to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), the Dubai Investment Park Station and Expo 2020 Station will be opened. The two stations will be opened six months after opening the Route 2020, which launched its first journey on January 1, 2021, with four stations namely Jebel Ali, The Gardens, The Discovery Gardens, and Al Furjan.
The traffic authority in the emirate said that the Expo 2020 station will be exclusively accessible to those who have access to the site of Expo until its official public opening on October 1.
"From June 1, journeys of Dubai Metro's Red Line will shuttle directly between Al Rashidiya Station and Expo 2020 Station. Jebel Ali Station will be an interchange station for those heading to or coming from UAE Exchange Station. As of June 1, the Metro service to Expo 2020 Station will be available only to those entitled to access the site of Expo until its official public opening on October 1. By that time, the public can use the metro service to Expo. The opening of the Jumeirah Golf Estates Station will coincide with the opening of Expo," Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), said in a statement.
