He confirmed that the Route 102 starts from the Rashidiya Metro Station and goes straight into the Global Village, and the Route 106 starts from Mall of the Emirates Station and heads to the venue too.
The previous routes of 103 and 104 have been improved and re-operated. Route 103 starts from Union metro station, passes Al Rabat Street and heads to the Global Village.
Route 104 begins at Al Ghubaiba Station, passes by Al Jafiliya metro station and stops at the Global Village.
