Read. at the Metro

Everyday, you will find thousand of commuters in Dubai, scampering to get on board the Metro, especially during the hours of 6 to 9 in the morning. 

Don't be surprised if a colleague who took the train comes to the office in a foul mood and with eyebrows that  meet in the middle. This is because the morning commute by Metro is really challenging and  if you are not an expert dodger, you might get a body slam or two.

Please don't get me wrong. I am not complaining. The Dubai Metro has made commuting a lot more comfortable. You can ride the train for 75 km without any traffic, enjoy the air-conditioning and be relieved of Dubai's sometimes unbearable heat, plus save a lot of money in contrast to riding a taxi. I think we can all agree that morning rush is normal and it happens to almost all cities in the world. But sometimes it is easy to forget how great the metro is when your face is only a few centimeters away from somebody else's armpit. 

Thankfully, a company called Continental Media FZ LLC, came up with a FREE weekly magazine for all Metro commuters called Read. It contains very informative and interesting articles that entertain bored and agitated passengers and it alleviates the heavy atmosphere at train stations during rush hour.

So, the next time that you are inside a Metro station, move your head from left to right, not only for neck exercises but also to look for a Read. magazine. I personally recommend it and just for friends, It's FREE!
