Using a tram in Dubai
Dubai has a wide choice of transportation ranging from private cars, taxis, public buses, marine transport, the Metro train and the Dubai Tram.
Dubai Tram stations on first phase
The Dubai Tram was launched in 2014, with the first phase starting at Dubai Marina and ending at Al Sufouh. The total trip includes 11 stations with an average time of 42 minutes to complete the journey through stations such as Dubai Marina, Jumeirah Beach Residence, Knowledge Village, Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City. The Dubai Tram connects to the Dubai Metro at Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lake Towers. It also connects to the Palm Jumeirah Monorail at Al Sufouh Street.
Timings and costs
The Dubai Tram operates from 6.30 am to 1.30 am (of the next day) from Saturday to Thursday. On Fridays, it operates from 9.30 am to 1.30 am (of the next day). Nol cards are used for the tram, with single journeys costing AED 3, regardless of the number of stations travelled during one commute. Red Nol paper tickets will cost AED 4 per trip. Senior citizens (over 60 years) get a 50% discount on travel.
Assistance for disabled passengers
A single tram can carry about 405 passengers in 7 carriages: one gold class, two carriages for women and children and 4 carriages for standard silver class. Special needs passengers and those who are disabled can use the access ramps for wheelchairs and can also use the special call buttons to get extra time to embark or dismount. Unlike the Dubai Metro which is unmanned, the Dubai Tram is driver operated, so the driver can steer the tram across open roads with traffic or respond to the call buttons for special needs passengers.
Code of conduct for motorists and pedestrians
Motorists need to remember that Dubai Tram has the right of way. Dubai Police has been authorized to fine motorists who jump the red light at tramway intersections with fines ranging from AED 30,000 (for causing accidents leading to death) to AED 5,000 (for driving through the red light without an accident). Cyclists are also advised not to cycle on the tracks as their cycle wheels may get stuck in the rail gap. Pedestrians are also advised not to cross at undesignated places along the tramway, otherwise they will be fined at least AED 1000 per violation.
