The Dubai Crown Prince marked the 11th anniversary of the Dubai Metro by tapping the Nol card for a train ride.

His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, is seen wearing a mask while filming his train ride.  

It was on this day in 2009 that His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the Dubai Metro at 9:00 pm on September 9. 

Since then, the Dubai Metro has served over 1.7 billion commuters.
