Over 4,000 Men Fined Being In Women’s Cabin On Dubai Metro
(27 April 2015)

 

The Road and Transport Authority (RTA) said 4,413 were caught between March 1 and April 15 alone.

Rail operations director Mohammed Yousef Al Mudharreb said: “The step is part of the RTA’s endeavours to maintain the privacy and comfort of women and children”.

The RTA expanded the compartments by doubling the 15 seats and 70 standing spaces in February.

But some female commuters said despite the fine they are still seeing men on a daily basis.

Bianca Noronha, 21, an events company worker from India, commutes from Union to Burjuman.

She said: “Some sit there and do not even give up the seat when they see a standing woman”.

“I feel some of the men use the women’s compartment so they can look at women. They just stand there staring, it makes me feel uncomfortable”.

Wai Ling Chong, 30, a sales executive from Malaysia, believes many men do not realise they cannot use the carriage, despite the introduction of new pink signs on the floor”.

She added: “I do not think a fine is necessary, but they should be informed of the rule”.
