The Dubai Metro has been experiencing operational problems since it launched on September 9. What do you think?
The results are in.

But 27 percent of our respondents blame the RTA for the problems; according to them, all these issues should have been resolved before the metro was launched. The trains did go on several trail runs, but, looks like, the glitches which the metro is currently facing now were not encountered.
However, the metro has only been running for a month, and the majority our poll respondents – 45 percent – believe that the issues will settle down in a month or two.
While Kipp agrees that these issues may only be teething problems, we are still wondering how some of the other more permanent problems will get resolved; for instance, the fact that there are only two access machines at one of the metro’s most popular stops – the Mall of The Emirates station. How are they going to deal with the serpentine queues during rush hour?
But it seems that questions like that are not bothering some people; 8 percent of our respondents are still wondering what problems we are talking about.
