Rta New Red Line Metro Route

RTA announced the new Red Line metro service route recently which is now open to the public

There’s a new Dubai metro update and it’s about to make travel that much easier.

The new Red Line metro route announced by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has now officially begun operations. So what exactly does it cover?

The new route will see two direct routes join the metro Red Line with Route 1 trains departing from Centrepoint Station heading to Expo 2020 Station, so passengers can easily reach any station between the Gardens and Expo 2020 stations.

Essentially after the first track train passes, the second track train will arrive at the same platform.

Track 2 trains start their journey from Centrepoint station towards the UAE Exchange station, so passengers can easily reach any station between the Ibn Battuta and UAE Exchange stations without having to change between trains at Jebel Ali station.

Of course, be sure to check the screens at the metro stations on the Red Line to make sure you’re taking the right train!
