Two more stations on Dubai Metro's 'Route 2020' will open on June 1.

Dubai Investment Park Station and Expo 2020 Station are the ones that will open next month.

Route 2020 launched its maiden journey on January 1, 2021 with four stations namely Jebel Ali (a transfer station on the Red Line), The Gardens, Discovery Gardens, and Al Furjan.

According to the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), from June 1st, Dubai Metro’s Red Line trips will shuttle directly between Al Rashidiya and Expo 2020 stations.

Jebel Ali Station will be an interchange station for those heading to or coming from UAE Exchange Station.

"However, the service to Expo 2020 Station will be available only to those entitled to access the Expo site until its official public opening on October 1, explained Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA.

"The opening of the Jumeirah Golf Estates Station will also coincide with the opening of Expo," added Al Tayer.
