Dubai Metro increases continue

Written by Ashley Waterman

People looking for a Dubai property investment might want to take advantage of the new Metro system, which has enjoyed great popularity since its opening earlier this month.

Statistics from the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) revealed that 60,837 passengers used the service on September 18th 2009 between ten stations on the Red Line.

There appears to be a growing desire to use the service, as figures from September 14th 2009 indicated that passenger numbers were 42,782.

While its popularity appears to be steadily growing since its opening on September 9th 2009, it is thought the Eid holidays will see an even greater usage of the service.

This prompted Peyman Younes Parham, director of RTA's marketing and corporate, to appeal to the public to be patient when entering the stations and heading for trains.

According to the RTA, there will be teams on hand at the stations to support the public and make it easier for them to travel using the Metro.

Those who want to find Dubai property for sale might benefit from purchasing near one of the stations as it will be easier to find their way around the emirate.

Among the locations to feature the transport hubs are Union Square, Mall of Emirates, Nakheel Harbour & Tower and Al Rashidya.
