Those who take the Dubai Metro have to know that some of the Dubai Metro stations have undergone changes. Umm Al Sheif on the Red Line was recently added to this list (it used to be called First Gulf Bank). In a few weeks, Equiti will be the next name for this Dubai Metro station.
Equiti Group is a leading brokerage service provider in the United Arab Emirates.
The name change will occur this month, so do not be alarmed if you hear it and think you have missed your stop. As part of the changes, announcements will be made when you are on board the Dubai Metro, external signs, and of course, maps will be prominently displayed all over the station.
The naming rights were granted to the Equiti group for a period of 10 years by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority.
