Dubai Metro riders will be able to commute seamlessly between Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC) (Station 37) and Ibn Battuta (Station 39) from today, without having to use the alternative free shuttle bus service.
Since January 5, 2018, the RTA had completely closed the Dubai Metro Red Line between DMCC and Ibn Battuta Metro Stations as part of Route 2020 Project requirements, which encompasses constructing a new metro station and linking it with the existing station. Accordingly, the Nakheel Harbour and Tower station and the attached multi-level parking terminal had been fully closed until further notice.
"RTA makes every effort to ensure the smooth running of public transit services constantly and seamlessly," said Mohammed Yousef Al Mudharreb, Director of Rail Operations at RTA's Rail Agency.
"RTA was keen to provide free shuttle buses between DMCC and Ibn Battuta Stations throughout the closure of the two metro stations to ensure the smooth mobility of riders and avoid inconveniencing them with construction works underway between the two stations. The step echoes RTA's vision for providing safe and smooth transport for all," added Al Mudharreb. 
RTA always endeavors to expanding and upgrading Dubai public transport network, including the Metro, which has become the ideal daily mobility option for numerous residents, tourists and visitors to the emirate from all over the world.
