About the tram

The Dubai Tram is one of the safest modes of public transport in the world, designed to be an essential part of the Dubai transport network. The tram service links Dubai Metro and the Palm Monorail and it runs along Al Sufouh Road and Jumeirah Beach Road.

Train Structure

The Dubai Tram is considered the first tramway project outside Europe powered by a ground-based electric supply system extending along the track, thus obviating 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, providing maximum convenience, safety and security for passengers, and at the same time protecting the quality of the air-conditioning in the interior of both stations and carriages from external climatic conditions.
