It works something like this, whatever way you’re traveling to on the Metro Line, you just need to get down at JLT/ Ibn Battuta and take a free shuttle service to Ibn Battuta/ JLT and then continue your normal Metro ride, Simple! Director of Planning and Business Development for RTA’s Public Transport Agency, Mohammed Al Hashmi said, “This service is offered to meet the needs of public transport riders in general and metro commuters in particular between the said two stations,” “The RTA makes every effort to offer the public convenient and seamless mobility, even during exceptional conditions that require physical changes on the ground,” he added.
