Dubai’s Road Transport Authority (RTA) wants commuters using its railway services to have a pleasant experience. One way to achieve this is to deter malpractice and violation of its by-laws. In doing so, a laundry list of fines have been published to the public not only to deter would-be violators but also to notify unsuspecting passengers that certain acts they think is allowed at the Metro is in fact prohibited.

  • Do not attempt to travel using the Metro while carrying alcoholic drinks. Fine: Dh 200
  • Sit properly. Placing feet on seats is a violation. Fine: Dh 100
  • Do not sell any goods inside Metro premises. Fine: Dh 200
  • Do not use someone else’s personalized card. Fine: Dh 200
