Happy? Get back to topic now..Dubai is just awesome.

Gone are the days when Arabs are the bad guys in Spielberg movies. Now the Arabs build world class cities and continue to be the main energy source to the Europeans and Americans..but wait..they'll earn more selling to the Chinese.
Dubai is just as autocentric as most US cities. You might want to actually do some research instead of just pulling facts out of your ass.

damn these train stations look futuristic like Star Trek.

Lots of glass, concrete, steel and 100% full airconditioning (to beat the outside heat).

I guess when your country has a lot of money, you can build world-class futuristic structures like these with ease


I wonder how much Dubai Metro spends to build one super futuristic train station like the one shown above?

21st century is not futuristic any more. Today looks like that.

I love the London Underground, and Isambard Kingdom Brunel, but current standards are 21st century, not your good old boys' "flash gordon"

But the city is putting a large amount of resources into balancing its transportation network. Once completed, the metro system will reach most of the city.

Dubai is truly an urban nightmare. The whole city is built completely wrong and car centric, with no real density. The metro is a fail too. They built it along the highway corridor, with its twenty lanes or so. That means access to stations is horribly long.

Fanboys should do their homework and look at some of America's systems, before placing their unqualified comments here.

For sure its easy to complain and whinge. Personally, I found the metro useful, as it served the places I wanted to go, although stupidly I chose not to live near it.

I actually found Dubai a great place to live, and enjoyed both my sojourns there; the first time, I did not have a car, while the second, I worked on a construction site which would have been inconvenient to live near or walk to... Like many other cities, you can choose where you live, and that will necessitate other lifestyle choices.

The great thing about Dubai is that their government has chosen to go for public transport, even though it will be of little use to them personally....

Its not forgotten. Sorry, I have taken my eye off that ball for the time being

When we look at the British rail industry, and the American car industry, in terms of global dominance, perhaps the Americans made the right decisions... remember that the USA is still an underpopulated country, unlike most European and East Asian countries; the Americans have room for sprawl

Wrong. Large portions of the United States are DESERT and unfit for human habitation. That skews the nation's population density which anti-transit morons use to argue for more misguided autocentrism.

How many deserts do Europe and East Asia have?

The entire eastern half of the U.S. has a population density comparable to that of Western Europe. America is in no way underpopulated.
