Plus, a list of all the metro stations on the Red and Green Line…

If you take the Dubai Metro, you must know that there have been a number of changes in some of the Dubai Metro stations. The latest station to be added to this list is Umm Al Sheif on the Red Line (which was earlier called First Gulf Bank). Well, soon this Dubai Metro station will undergo yet another name change to Equiti.

Equiti Group is a leading provider of brokerage services in the UAE.

The change in name will take place at some point this month, so do not be alarmed when you hear it and think you’ve missed your stop. The changes will include the announcements made when you are on board the Dubai Metro, external signs and of course, on the maps all over the station and in the cabins.
