Kipp rides the Dubai Metro

Kipp rides the Dubai Metro

And we enjoyed it. The train is comfortable, it looks good, and despite operational problems, we reached our destination safely.

The train itself is really comfortable; there aren’t too many seats, but the standing the area is wide and being new, the compartments look clean. The gold class compartment is cordoned off from the economy class with a door, which can be opened from either side. But inside, it doesn’t look very different from the rest of the train.

Most of the people on the train were to experience the thrill of riding the metro, and everyone seemed to be enjoying it. There were short discussions on how this metro was better than the ones in New York, London and Singapore; and how Dubai was on its way to becoming one of the best cities in the world. They were also saying that the metro will be extremely beneficial for the people in the city.

Also, almost everyone had a camera. The train didn’t seem to go too fast, and the views of the city were great. Predictably, Burj Dubai and the Burj Al Arab had most of the people cramming at the windows. We passed through many stations which were not completed, and also stopped at one of them because of “operational problems”.

Our train was supposed to continue on to the Nakheel Harbour and Tower station, but thanks again to “operational problems”, Mall of the Emirates was our train’s final stop.

We waited in a long queue, swiped our tickets, and our metro ride was over.

Will Kipp be riding it again? Certainly.

In the meantime, do let us know what you think about the metro. You can email your stories to [email protected].
