Dubai Metro Red Line services experienced disruptions on Wednesday morning, affecting commuters traveling between Al Khail Station and UAE Exchange Station. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) did not specify the cause of the delay during peak rush hour. The disruption was initially reported at 6:19 am and impacted morning office commuters for over an hour.

According to the RTA post on the X platform, alternative bus services have been put in place to facilitate transportation between the affected stations. Khaleej Times has reached out to RTA for further information regarding the disruption. Meanwhile, some commuters reported long queues and a lack of adequate buses, while others expressed frustration over the absence of clear information and staff assistance.

Furthermore, on May 19, three of the four rain-affected metro stations were reopened after a month of closure due to record rains and subsequent flooding. The reopening of the Onpassive, Equiti, and Mashreq metro stations provided relief for daily commuters who had faced extensive travel times and increased costs during the closure period. However, the fourth station, Energy metro station, is scheduled to reopen on May 28 after completing necessary maintenance and testing.
