Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) will soon offer 174 retail outlets for rent at both the Red Line and Green Line stations to interested parties. About 106 retail outlets will be available for rent in the Red Line stations and 68 retail outlets in the Green Line stations, RTA said during a presentation to the tenants of the Dubai Metro stations outlets.
Work stalled on big-ticket projects including Dubai Metro’s Green Line and the Al Sufouh Tram, over complaints of non-payment from contractors. The RTA said in January it would seek funding for nearly a third of its infrastructure schemes over the next five years in a bid to spread the risk and cost of large projects.
Many more passengers are expected to board as they become accustomed to this new option for travel. It is projected that in the next few months more than 100,000 people will take the Green Line each day. The route cuts through some of the most congested parts of Dubai, along both sides of the Creek.
The opening of the Green Line will surely add more burdens on the staff of the OCC in terms of monitoring and exercising total control of systems, stations and depot with a view to detecting & rectifying any emergent failure and ensuring highly efficient and safe running trains.
"The video showcases a number of regulations and guidelines to be complied with, to ensure customer satisfaction and avoid offences, which are mostly attributed to passengers' poor knowledge about these guidelines. The two-minute video was shown in all 44 trains, on screens mounted in carriages.
"The route of the Green Line was designed as part of a master plan intended to enhance the integration of mass transit modes and to expand public transport reach to major residential, trading and business districts as well as cultural, sports and health facilities,"
It has been almost 21 months since Dubai Metro began operation and some passengers are still fuzzy on the rules, despite campaigns by authorities to keep them informed. Does the ban on food include gum? Does it include baby food? And is it OK to run to catch a train?
