Dubai Trolley, The world’s first hydrogen-powered, zero-emission street trolley tram opened for public service.
The user friendly transit system is an attractive commuting service for visitors and residents alike. Dubai Trolley rolls along Mohammad Bin Rashid Boulevard, offering residents and tourists an easy access to the Dubai Mall, Souq Al Bahar and several iconic hotels. It is travelling in a distance of one kilometer in the first phrase.
“Dubai Trolley is another innovative addition to Downtown Dubai that also redefines the concept of urban mobility. By integrating the unmatched aesthetics of a trolley tram with a state-of-the-art locomotive system, Emaar is presenting a sustainable transport mode for visitors and residents in Downtown Dubai,” said Ahmad Al Matroushi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties.
The trolley can comfortably seat 50 passengers at a time. It will offer its services from 4pm to midnight on weekdays and from 3pm to 11pm on weekends and will move at a leisurely speed of 10km/h but if needed the trolley can manage speed up to 80km/h.
The trolley will redefine the concept of smart urban mobility which can be adopted by other cities as well. There is an open deck facility in the double-decker tram. The tram is fully air conditioned and elegantly designed to complement the Arabesque architectural features of Downtown Dubai.
“In a polished design, they are resplendent in bright red with aesthetic gold pinstripes and green trim colours. During winter, the glass window panels of the trolley tram will be removed for the added comfort of the passengers,” said Al Matroushi.
The tram serves food and beverages and currently stops at three stations along with a Trolley Terminus near Old Town Island. The Dubai Trolley will be fully operational soon spanning across 7 km across the entire breath of Downtown Dubai.
