Dubai's transport authority is set to relocate the women and children’s cabin on Dubai Metro trains in a project lasting two months.

During this period, these cabins, along with posters, will be relocated from the current location near the Gold Cabin to the new location at the other end of the train. 

The relocation process to add privacy and convenience to riders will be completed by the end of August, said the Rail Agency of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in a statement.

“RTA looks out for the comfort of Dubai Metro riders, especially women and children. The Rail Agency has kicked off a field campaign to implement this process, which aims to make the Women & Children cabins in harmony with the the new trains cabins designs,” said Mohammed Yousef Al Mudharreb, director of Rail Operation at RTA’s Rail Agency.

He said the changes will be implemented in three phases, phase one of which aims to create awareness among metro riders through social media and directional signs.

Employees will also be at hand to guide passengers and respond to their queries regarding the new changes.

In phase two, posters will be placed on floors and platform screen doors to lead women and children to the new location of their cabin while the third phase will focus on the completion of the relocation.
