It looks nice.

How much is the cost of buying a house there in the Palm? If you don't mind......
Probably still expensive but wait a year and you might get it for a cheap price.

Nakheel and RTA delegation take first official trip on Palm Monorail

- Middle East’s first monorail will welcome passengers on board in April 2009

Dubai, 26 January 2009: Nakheel, renowned for its innovation and pioneering projects, hosted a delegation from the Road Transport Authority (RTA) on the Palm Monorail’s first official ride last week.

The delegation, led by RTA CEO Mr. Abdulmajid Al Khaja, travelled from Gateway Station at the trunk of Palm Jumeirah to Atlantis Aquaventure Station. The journey between the two stations which are at either end of the monorail track, covering a distance of 5.45km, took eight minutes.

Chris O’Donnell, CEO, Nakheel said:

“On the first official journey between Gateway station and Atlantis station representatives from both Nakheel and RTA were able to experience this fabulous example of modern transportation, design and construction. We have been working very closely with our strategic partner RTA since the Palm Monorail’s inception. Our cooperation with RTA extends as far as a joint ticketing system that will enable holders of a RTA farecard to pay for journeys on the Palm Monorail.

“As a result of this cooperation we are delighted to be able to announce that the Palm Monorail will be open for visitors of Palm Jumeirah from April 2009.”

Mr. Abdulmajid Al Khaja, CEO of RTA added:

“Our partnership with Nakheel on the Palm Monorail project has been a very fruitful and exciting experience. It is the culmination of many dedicated people’s hard work and commitment that has allowed us to experience the first official ride on the Palm Monorail. Together, Nakheel and RTA have been focused on delivering a transport service which will enhance the other transportation projects currently underway in Dubai. When we connect the Palm Monorail to the Metro we will be able to offer passengers a seamless journey from Dubai International Airport to the hotels on Palm Jumeirah, using just one farecard.

“As we enter the final stages of completion we look forward to the next important stage of welcoming Dubai’s residents and many visitors here on board.”

The Palm Monorail is the first system of its kind to be completed in the Middle East and sets global standards for the transportation industry. State-of-the-art technology has been employed to overcome a number of challenges including running 1,000m of rail over-sea, meeting Dubai's unique climatic conditions, and protecting the communities of Palm Jumeirah from noise pollution by using a virtually silent track system.

Developed by a consortium of leading international companies, led by the Marubeni Corporation, the Palm Monorail’s system is fully automatic and driverless, although an attendant will be on board at all times. The monorail will initially carry up to 2,400 passengers per hour per direction in four separate trains, each made up of three cars. At full capacity, the figure will rise to a maximum of 6,000 people in nine vehicles.

The Monorail transports people from the earth station at the entrance of the Palm (on-shore) to the Atlanti Hotel, with at least 2 other stops in between. At the on-shore station it will be connected with the planned Al Soufuh Tram line, which in return also connect to Dubai Metro.

As for the payment, yes, you'd have to pay to use it ... at least this is what is indicated so far.
