Dubai Tram Information
The Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum introduced the first tram line in Dubai on the 11th of November 2014. The 10.6 km long tram line currently serves 11 stations, with around 8 more planned. There are future plans to connect the Tram line with the monorail that serves Palm Jumeirah. The operators and owners of the line are infact two different entity’s. It is owned by the Road and Transport Authority (Dubai) and is operated by Serco. The Dubai tramway is special for the fact that it is the first tramway network out of Europe that uses a ground-based electric supply system.
Dubai Tram Timings and Frequency
The tram service is an extremely accessible means of public transport because of the cheap fares as well as timings. It runs for not less than 19-hours a day. From Saturday-Thursday, the line operates between 06:30-01:30 am, the next day. Whereas, on Fridays it begins service slightly later running from 09:00-01:30 am, the next day. The minimum time interval between two trams is approximately 8 minutes.
Dubai Tram Tickets
Just how Nol cards are used for payment on the metro, it can be used for other public transportations like busses and even trams. The fare however, again depends on the number of zones one travels. As of now, the entire network lies within just one zone and therefore the maximum price for a single journey, irrespective of the distance is just 3 dhirams.
Children under the age of 5 do not need a ticket to travel on the trams.
