Be aware, metro-travellers of Dubai, as metro stations across the city will soon be changing their names.

RTA Dubai has revealed it will be renaming three of the Dubai Metro Stations, including Nakheel Harbour and Tower, Palm Deira and Sharaf DG.

After a recent agreement with Mashreq Bank, the new name of the ex-Sharaf DG station will be called Mashreq Metro Station, and will soon include interactive digital LED signage as well digital kiosks at the stations.

The strategic agreement also adds Mashreq Bank branding at Business Bay and Downtown Dubai/Burj Khalifa stations, close to the bank’s new headquarters set to open in Downtown Dubai later in 2020.

RTA is always keen to update the information of its mass transit services, including the naming rights of the Dubai Metro stations. Our objective is to make people happier by making the metro ride experience safe, smooth and speedy,” said CEO of RTA Rail Agency Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes.

That’s not all, as RTA will also be renaming Nakheel Harbour and Tower, and Palm Deira to Gold Souq and Jabal Ali, respectively. The move aims to boost RTA’s partnership with the private and semi-government sector in the emirate.

RTA will be finalising the renaming of the three metro stations from Monday May 18 to Tuesday July 2.

This will involve changing the external signage, updating the smart and E-Systems of public transport as well as updating the audio announcement on board metro cabins.

RTA Dubai recently announced that over the course of a year, it has broken new records in saving fuel water and reduced its carbon footprint. Find out more here.
