The journey between Jebel Ali and Al Furjan takes about six minutes and frequency will be 10 minutes at a rate of six trains per hour, with the route serving 4,176 riders per hour per direction. From Jebel Ali I can change to the main line and access the Marina, Mall of the Emirates, Dubai Mall and the Airport within 10-40 minutes, or 5 mins towards Abu Dhabi for Ibn Battuta Mall. I can also access bus routes from the metro stations to the malls, medical centres, beauty salons, supermarkets as well as the beach, tourist attractions, the canal and ferry terminals and Old Dubai, the Creek and the Souks. Pretty much ALL of Dubai.
I prefer travelling by public transport, you see so much more interesting places to just stop off at get a great view of the ever changing city, meet some interesting people and best of all, it costs less than £1 to travel the length of the line in one go.
What a cool structure! I like the shapes.ReplyDelete
It's based on a pearl shell which is how Dubai came aboutDelete
It's an interesting design. I love how you capture the changes so beautifully. #MySUndayPhotoReplyDelete
How exciting to see something being built and then riding on it. It looks so shiny and new. xReplyDelete
I've really enjoyed watching it being builtDelete
I agree with Kim! It should have been exciting to ride the metro after documenting it for three years!ReplyDelete
It is great to be able to get back on the train now it's finishedDelete
The gold roof is rather fabulous. A very interesting structure. Must be good to ride the metro now it's running #mysundayphotoReplyDelete
It takes a lot of cleaning thoughDelete
What a building that is, stunning. It's the stats of the trains too, 6 an hour serving 4,000 people is incredible.ReplyDelete
Thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto
At the moment it is very quiet, but starting to see quite a few school children using it nowDelete
It looks amazing and £1 to ride the length of the line sounds like a bargain! It's great that the trains are so regular too.ReplyDelete
It's ever such good value for moneyDelete
