Money transfer company UAE Exchange, owned by Indian-born billionaire Bavaguthu Raghuram Shetty, is the latest to sign a deal to name a Dubai Metro station.
The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has announced that the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank (ADCB) has joined the Dubai Metro corporate bandwagon, allowing Karama station on the Red Line to be named after this flagship financial institution.
If you missed the news last week, you would think a new metro station has been added to the Red Line of Dubai Metro , as the announcement of ' Noor Bank station' sounds somewhat unfamiliar.
On the occasion of the World No Tobacco Day, the Administrative Services Department at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) Corporate Administrative Support Services Sector has recently organized an anti-smoking initiative targeting the users of Dubai Metro in cooperation with the Dubai Health Authority and Prime Medical Center.
Thousands of passengers were stranded for nearly an hour at several stations during the evening peak hours as Dubai Metro services on the Red Line were interrupted due to what the officials called a “technical glitch.” Apparently, train services were disrupted between Nakheel station near Dubai Internet City and Jafliya metro station for nearly an hour as passengers complained of power failures as well at many stations.
The two entities have thus become integral parts of the development drive the RTA is seeking to realize on the ground through the Metro project, which has contributed immensely in transforming the concept of cooperation between partners to go beyond the traditional sponsorship and branding to a deeper level of holistic brand/business integration and partnership.
The express trains will start operating at 5.30am, 20 minutes earlier than the actual operation time of the metro’s regular service, from Jebel Ali and Al Rashidiya stations. Each train will stop only at 13 main stations in both directions instead of 27, and they are Al Rashidiya, Emirates, Al Rigga, Union, Khalid Bin Al Waleed, Al Karama, Al Jafiliya, Emirates Towers, Noor Islamic Bank, First Gulf Bank, Dubai Internet City, Ibn Battuta and Jebel Ali stations, he added.
From the start of next October, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) is poised to reduce the trip time of the Dubai Metro Red Line by offering two services on a trial basis for a period of 5 months in a bid to better serve the interest of the Metro users such that they can arrive at their work places in a speedy and hassle-free way.
“The Metro lifted 206,000 passengers compared to 140,000 passengers it carries on normal days. All these are positive indicators that we’re moving into the right direction of realising our target,” said Ramadan. At a rate of 140,000 passengers per day, this makes it about 4,020,000 per month.
