WOW, you really have great knowledge about urban public transport, if building them paralel or beneath cities busiest road corridors, is the wrong thing to do.

As for the bllah, bllah about long access to the stations .... another sign of cluelessness.

Rheimtran doesnt know what he is talking about as usual, he used to praise london under ground until he used it and found what a nightmare it is, something every londoners know the hard way, including myself. He is just the jealous type, privately he wishes for dubai infrastructure but is too proud to admit it ?

Most US cities are making that effort as well though many special interest groups with their own agendas continue to get in the way. Dubai and the UAE have an advantage in this regard compared with most developed democracies since basically they have a Sheikh running and controlling nearly everything.

NBC stole the design of Dubai Metro above-ground station, and used in one of their Jan 14th SNL (Saturday night Live) sketches, as a year 2112 theater

Oh? where else online might I find the rendered conviction?



Any guess as to why the slow travel by this unit; do all the trains negotiate this segment so slowly?

I heard Dubai will also open a tram system in 2012. Is it true? If yes, what is the latest status. Plz give details with photo, map etc.

Yes, the initial phase is supposed to be just over 10 km long with 13 stations. However, the opening has been pushed back to 2014 because Dubai RTA struggled to make payments.

A silly question, but I am wondering why that Dubai Metro page has a European top level domain. Is there a particular reason for that?

Great question! Although that page looks official, it is not. Basically the company that made it are graphic designers and other professionals that are interested in transit, particularly in the middle east. The official Dubai RTA page is here: http://www.rta.ae/dubai_metro/english/home.html


The group that made the page also has made them for other cities, including Abu Dhabi, Theran, and Doha. Here is the link for those:http://internetcont.com/portfolio/metro-world

Is it possible to get around Dubai efficiently without a car? Is this the goal of the Dubai government? From what it looks like you need a car to get around many places in Dubai. Also is there a rail link from the airport to the city?
