Dubai Tram transports 32 million passengers since launch in 2014

The tram connects 11 stations

The Dubai Tram has lifted 31,720,472 riders since its launch date of November 11, 2014, up until the end of September this year.

Stretching 10.6 kilometres, it connects 11 stations namely JBR 1, JBR 2, JLT, Dubai Marina Mall, Dubai Marina, Marina Towers, Mina Seyahi, Media City, Palm Jumeirah, Knowledge Village and Al Sufouh.

The tram has enhanced the integration of public transit means, as it links with Dubai Metro at two stations on Sheikh Zayed Road (DAMAC Properties Station and JLT Station).

From a safety and sustainability standpoint, the tram operation has resulted in zero fatalities, while reducing the carbon footprint by 81 per cent since its launch.

Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has fitted some tram stations with four covered/air-conditioned pedestrian bridges to serve riders and residents on both sides of the road. Two footbridges were constructed on Al Sufouh Street, and the other two connect opposite sides of TECOM and Dubai Marina Mall to ensure safe crossing.

The Dubai Tram is the first tramway project outside Europe powered by a ground-based electric supply system running along the entire track, negating the need for catenary cables.

It is also the world’s first tramway that uses Platform Screen Doors in passenger stations fully aligned with the tram’s doors opening and shutting mechanism.
