Emaar Properties has marked another achievement with the roll out of the zero-emission street trolley tram, the Dubai Trolley. Covering Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, it is the region’s first-of-its-kind hop-on hop-off transit system that will offer easy and free access for visitors and residents to several iconic attractions in Downtown Dubai.
As part of the initial phase, the driver-operated Dubai Trolley will drive across a distance of 1 km, offering a relaxed transport experience for people and enhancing access to landmarks such as Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; the Dubai Mall, the world’s most-visited and largest retail and entertainment destination; and Souk Al Bahar, an Arabesque shopping and dining destination. The transit system also offers convenient hop-on hop-offs at three world-class hotels: The Address Downtown Dubai, Vida Downtown Dubai and Manzil Downtown Dubai.
Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties, said: “Dubai Trolley is another innovative addition to Downtown Dubai that also redefines the concept of urban mobility. Emaar is presenting a sustainable transport mode for visitors and residents in Downtown Dubai. Apart from being environmentally sustainable and enhancing the convenience of the public, it is designed to be another compelling tourist attraction in Dubai.” The double-decker trolley tram can carry 50 passengers and is developed to the highest safety standards.
When fully operational, Dubai Trolley will eventually span 7 km across the entire breadth of Downtown Dubai. Several crossings have been provided along the tramway to safe pedestrian traffic.
