Dubai Tram

The Dubai Tram is the city’s latest mode of public transport. It opened to the public on November 12 2014.

Trams loop around Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Beach Residence and then head off down Al Sufouh Road into Al Sufouh passing Dubai Media City, the Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai Pearl, and Dubai Knowledge Village.

Timings and Operating Hours

The Dubai Tram operates Saturday to Thursday from 6.30 am to 1.30 am. Hours on Friday are 9 am to 1.30 am.

There is only a 10-minute interval (12-minute at off-peak hours) between trams so no timetable is necessary. A trip along the entire route takes just over 40 minutes.

The Trams

Each of the trams has five carriages and can carry 405 passengers. There are special sections reserved for Gold Class passengers and women and children.

11 trams are currently in operation.

Fares

Payment is by Nol Card, the same system used to pay for trips on the Dubai Metro and public buses.

A ride on the Dubai Tram costs 3 AED (4 AED for those using Red Nol Tickets), regardless of the distance travelled. The Gold Class fare is 6 AED.

Expansion

Phase II will see another 5 km of track added to the line, taking it to the Madinat Jumeirah, the Burj Al Arab and the Mall of the Emirates. Completion is set for 2020.

Phase III is expected to see track added along Jumeirah Road, right up to 2nd of December Street (formerly Al Diyafah Street), passing through Umm Suqeim and Jumeirah. Completion is scheduled for 2025.
