Top 3 Violations Recorded In Dubai Metro & Tram

Water taxis, buses, metro, tram, and the taxis are some of the means of transport provided by the UAE. While each have their own rules, many don't follow them. Here are the top three violations recorded in Dubai Metro and tram coaches and stations according to Road and Transport Authority (RTA).

First violation is accessing or sitting in areas designated for specific categories, such as men sitting or accessing the only women and children area as signs are put almost everywhere, so if you are a tourist or perhaps using the public transportation for the first time, then you might want to pay more attention to the signs.

The second violation is using public transport facilities and services, or entry/exit of fare zones without paying the applicable fare. Meaning if you a silver metro ticket, yet still use the gold area then you are probably in trouble!

The third violation is eating and drinking in prohibited areas. As RTA longs for maintaining the safety and cleanliness of the cabins and facilities.

“The dedicated Metro and tram teams undertake continuous awareness campaigns, urging riders to comply with the safety standards as well as the precautionary measures to maintain the public health and halt the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic,” said Hasan Al Mutawa, Director of Rail Operations, Rail Agency, RTA.

He also added saying, “These monitoring and inspection campaigns on the facilities and trains of the Dubai Metro and tram are not aimed at issuing tickets to violators. They rather stem from the RTA’s standing commitment to apply the top global practices for ensuring the safety of riders and the cleanliness of mass transit means.”

He emphasized the importance of maintaining the safety and cleanliness of the Metro and tram saying, “It is rather shared by all riders who have to keep the cabins and iconic stations of the Dubai Metro and Tram clean and gorgeous.”
