Al Fahidi Metro Station on Dubai Metro’s Green Line has been renamed to Sharaf DG Metro Station, the Roads and Transport Authority announced on Tuesday.
According to the RTA, 7.8 million riders are served at Sharaf DG Metro Station (Al Fahidi station) every year. The agreement granting Sharaf Group the naming rights of the former Al Fahidi Metro Station was signed by Abdul Mohsen Ibrahim Younes, CEO of RTA’s Rail Agency and Major General (r) Sharaf Udeen Sharaf Al Hashmi, Vice-Chairman of Sharaf Group.
Younes said: “The metro stations naming rights initiative offers a fabulous investment opportunity to private firms and organisations in various trading, financial and service sectors in the UAE. It enables investors to showcase their names and brands in a vibrant city like Dubai with such a high-profile standing in the business, service, finance and tourist industries”.
The RTA will also rename four more Dubai Metro stations, namely First Abu Dhabi Bank to Umm Al Sheef; Noor Bank to Al Safa; Damac to Dubai Marina; and Nakheel to Al Khail.
