Men to get $27 fine as part of new crackdown
Men found travelling in the newly expanded women and children carriages of the Dubai Metro will be fined AED100 ($27), the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has said.
The fine, which has been in effect since March 1, is part of the RTA’s endeavours to maintain the privacy and comfort of women and children and to respect the norms and traditions of the community.
Mohammed Al Mudharreb, the director of rail operation of the RTA’s Rail Agency, said: "Expanding the women and children cabin was prompted by the rising numbers of riders of this compartment over the past years. This has warranted an expansion of this cabin permanently as of February 15."
The expanded women-only compartment comprises 15 seats and has space for 70 passengers to stand.
