Top-Tier Services and Exclusive Offerings – World Trade Centre Metro Station
It is impossible that you are enjoying your journey on the Dubai metro train and don’t find the exclusive offerings. I want to express what I discovered inside the metro station. Once I stepped into the metro station, I felt the cool air of the fully air-conditioned metro station.
There were way signages from which I found the way where to go. But the commuters were also going to the information desk to ask where to buy the ticket. The station contains ticket offices where tickets can be purchased by cash or the vending machines use the self-service.
Most residents of Dubai were taking the Nol Cards which they were using for buying tickets. Since I was going to visit a lot of attractions, I made up my mind to visit the Zoom store to purchase something to eat. There are large real-time display screens which provide information to the passengers about the arrival and departure of trains.
The best thing which I found about the station is that it is completely secure by high-quality surveillance cameras. However, an ECB (Emergency Call Button) is installed in the button which can be used in case of any emergency.
