A landmark destination in the UAE and the first among the TECOM Investments free zones, we feel honoured that one of the Dubai metro stations is to be named after Dubai Internet City.

 

“DIC is committed to remain a pioneer in spearheading the latest innovation and development in the region. To have the station named after Dubai Internet City is one of the acknowledgements of our achievements. DIC is committed to create a better working environment for the business community in the UAE; we believe the metro station will benefit our business partners and employees.”

 

Abdnan Al Hamadi, Acting CEO of RTA’s Rail Agency, said: “The rail network in Dubai is designed for the emirate to stay ahead of other cities in urban development while providing an effective link with other modes of public transport, enabling people to conveniently transit from various venues. We are confident the Dubai Internet City Metro Station would help professionals and business visitors to rapidly reach their destinations throughout the day.”
