RTA’s Rail Agency has added six fare collection gates to the Business Bay Metro Station, thus raising the number of entry gates at the station from 4 to 10.
The step has been taken in response to the growing footfall at the station, which is in line with the sustained growth in demand for the metro service in Dubai fueled by ever-increasing demographic and urbanization rates in the Emirate.
The move comes at a time where mass transit means in general and Dubai Metro, in particular, is heading towards an exceptional demand from visitors & tourists especially on the eve of the New Year 2017.
“RTA is always keen to bring happiness and raise the satisfaction of clients from all spectrums of the community through providing advanced, safe and quick transit means enabling them to go about their business in the Emirate and enjoy their daily rides of the metro, tram and others,” said Mohammed Yousef Al Mudharreb, Director of Rail Operation, RTA’s Rail Agency.
“About (506,345) riders used the entry gates at the Business Bay Station last November and (502,572) riders used the exit gates of the station during the same month,” he reported. More info
