Since starting operation in September 2011, the Green Line of the Dubai Metro has seen ridership levels beyond expectations with as much as 11,849,172 passengers travelling through the Green Line up to last January. Ramadan Abdullah, Director of Rail Operation at RTA Rail Agency, said: “The growing numbers of passengers using the Green Line reflect the substantial evolution in the culture of community members vis-à-vis the use of mass transit.”
Dubai Metro’s Red Line opened in September 2010, bringing 52 kilometres of travel options for Dubai residents and visitors. This month, the 22km Green Line opens with 16 of its 18 new stations operating, along with transfer stations Khalid Bin Al Waleed and Uniion Square, promising easier access to even more of the emirate’s best views and venues.
The Dubai Metro Red Line resulted in a quality shift in the integration of mass transit modes in the Emirate as it formed the initial phase of a project considered the first of its kind across the region. This line proved to be absolutely important in inspiring the Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) personnel to vigorously proceed ahead with the completion of the second phase of the project represented by the Green Line.
The first public transport ferry service is set to start from August, coinciding with the launch of the Metro Green Line, a senior RTA official told Khaleej Times. The route for the service between Al Ghubaiba and Dubai Marina is expected to complement the Metro as it passes through areas not served by the trains but would be connecting with two major metro stations.
Use of private vehicles in the Central Business Districts (CBDs) of Dubai is likely to be limited once the Green Line of the Dubai Metro becomes operational after August next year, said a senior official. "The move is part of our plan to ease traffic congestion in the old city which is the hub of commercial activities and has always witnessed massive traffic jams," said the official at the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
