Travel from Al Rashidiya to Expo 2020 site on Dubai Metro in 74 minutes

The first trains travelling straight from Al Rashidiya to Expo 2020 metro station were off to a good start on Tuesday (June 1) and commuters no longer had to switch trains at Jebel Ali interchange station if they’re headed towards any station on Route 2020. Two new stations on Route 2020 opened on Tuesday.

Aside from Expo 2020 Station, the Dubai Investment Park (DIP) station, an underground metro station that spans 27,000 sqm in area and extends 226 metres in length, also became operational on June 1.

The opening of the two new stations comes six months after the opening of the 15-km extension on the Red Line, Route 2020, which started its maiden journey on January 1 initially with four stations — Jebel Ali (transfer station on the Red Line), The Gardens, Discovery Gardens, and Al Furjan.
