Dubai Hills Estate, a mega development by Emaar Properties and Meraas Holding within Mohammed bin Rashid City (MBR) City, will house 26,400 residential units and will have its own rail line connecting to the emirate’s two international airports.
A metro station on the Purple Line of Dubai Metro will be among the features of the future community Dubai Hills Estate, located in Mohammed Bin Rashid City, according to sales representatives of the project.
That plan includes an overall number of 197 stations to serve six Dubai Metro lines: the Red and the Green lines that are already operational, alongside the Blue Line, Violet Line, Gold Line and the Purple Line. “Accomplishment of the final train networks shall be largely contingent on completion of the developmental projects in the emirate and the population growth, too,” Al Tayer said.
Three new Metro lines — Blue, Gold and Purple — and a Jumeirah tram route will be up and running by 2030. Besides these, the current Red and Green lines will grow longer and will serve a growing population in the densely populated urban areas of Dubai. “The plans have been endorsed by His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai,” said Al Tayer.
The Roads & Transport Authority (RTA) has appointed Serco Middle East to manage and operate the system under a 7 year licence to 2014 with an option to extend for another 5 years to 2019. The RTA is responsible for all public transport in Dubai including the Metro, buses, taxis and water taxis

Even since the Dubai Metro became part of the essential fabric of the city on 09/09/09, officials at the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) have made every effort to ensure it meets passengers' needs. Gradually, in an effective and cohesive manner, the officials opened up the stations, making sure the feeder bus network grew along service demands.
Ninety per cent of the work on the Green Line of Dubai Metro has been completed and the second line of the rail network is on schedule to begin its journey from August, a senior RTA official said. At the moment, the work on the Green Line is going according to the plan, said Ramadan Abdullah, Director of Operations at RTA’s Rail Agency told Khaleej Times.
