The inaugural Dubai Metro train has arrived at the new Expo 2020 Station.
The stunningly designed station forms a key part of RTA’s Route 2020, a 15-kilometre extension to the Dubai Metro that connects Jebel Ali Station to the Expo 2020 site, passing through communities such as Discovery Gardens and Dubai Investments Park.
Situated at one of the four entrances to Expo 2020, Expo 2020 Station will provide direct access to Dubai Exhibition Centre, Expo 2020 Dubai. Al Wasl Plaza, the beating heart of Expo 2020, is also only a short walk away, making this the ideal transportation option for Expo visitors.
The Expo 2020 Station, which can accommodate a peak of 22,000 passengers per hour in each direction, is currently open only to Expo staff and those with permission to access the site. Members of the public will be able to alight here from 1 October 2021, when Expo opens its doors to the world for six unforgettable months.
