Dubai Metro is the first of several planned urban rail systems in the Gulf. The network has carried 7,592,066 people since its launch on 09.09.09, according to the latest statistics released by Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).

Many see the Dubai Metro, which cost $7.6 billion to construct, as a precursor to how other Gulf municipal rail projects could work. It is likely that Dubai’s two-line metro will link to the GCC rail network, to allow easy connections between the two.

There are currently 11 stations operating on the Dubai Metro’s Red Line, with the remaining stations set to open by the end of February. The Green Line will launch later this year – possibly on 10.10.10, in keeping with the RTA’s penchant for catchy dates. Once completed, the entire Dubai Metro network will have 127km of rail.
