    Fines of AED100 will be handed out to anyone caught eating or drinking on the Dubai Metro, it was reported on Tuesday.

    And penalties will rise to AED500 for offences such as destroying, damaging or tampering with devices, equipment or seats of public transport facilities and services.

    A AED200 fine awaits any passenger who tries to use the metro system without a valid ticket.
