Update: Dubai Metro back on track after 'technical glitch'


Services on Dubai Metro's Red Line have resumed after a technical glitch disrupted morning commute for several officegoers on Wednesday.

Operations were initially suspended at Sharaf DG station around 8:45 am, and nearly three hours later disruptions were reported at four other stations as well.

Shuttle buses had been deployed to transport passengers between the affected stations.

In a Tweet, the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) confirmed that the issue has now been resolved and services have returned to normal.
