“The launch of the new route on Sunday is a quick response to the needs of mass transport riders, and fits well with the booming economic activities in the Emirate which is part of the upswing witnessed by the UAE,” said Engineer Adel Mohammed Shakri, Director of Planning & Business Development, RTA Public Transport Agency.
“Route F26, a metro station feeder service, will start from the bus stop near Noor Bank Metro Station and run through Interchange 4, Umm Suqeim Road. It will serve all districts of Al Quoz Industrial Areas 1, 2, and 3 and will pass through the First Gulf Bank Metro Station, residential quarters of National Cement Company, and other key geographic landmarks in the area,” stated Shakri.
