Dubai is one of the safest places for females and children and the city puts in an ongoing effort to ensure the maximum level of comfort and safety for women and children in the City of Gold.
With this in mind, RTA has announced that they will be upgrading the women and children’s cabin by relocating the compartments to the other end of the train, away from the gold class compartment. This is to provide further space and privacy to women and kids.
So basically on one end of the train will be the gold class carriage and on the other end will be the pink carriages for ladies and the young metro riders whereas the middle compartments will remain the same for the silver class metro travelers.
This change will happen by the end of August 2019
This announcement was made by the RTA on June 26
