Dubai’s RTA has started this month issuing AED 100 fine on every unauthorized male rider found in the newly expanded Women & Children-Only Compartment of the Dubai Metro. All directional signs at the metro station have been replaced and all relevant information of the women & children cabin is being provided to be readily distinguished.
Mohammed Al Mudharreb, the director of rail operation of RTA’s Rail Agency, said: “The RTA always seeks to carry out initiatives that contribute to addressing the needs in addition to the wishes of the public. “Expanding the women and children cabin was prompted by the rising numbers of riders of this compartment over the past years. This has warranted an expansion of this cabin permanently as of February 15.”
So make sure you are in the right compartment of the Metro when using!
