The Dubai Metro is an amazing way to get around the city, especially if you don’t have your own car, or you’re just visiting. Not only does it help to reduce the amount of traffic in the city, but it also helps to connect the many different areas that make up Dubai, including the city center and other major hubs such as Dubai International Airport and Emirates Towers. The entire network stretches over 78km, with separate lines serving both Deira and Bur Dubai (and new extensions planned), and plans are already underway to expand it further in the near future!

What is the Dubai Metro?
The Dubai Metro is a driverless, fully automated metro rail network in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It began operation in September 2009, and has expanded with two new lines opening in 2011 and 2013. There are currently two operational lines (Red Line & Green Line) with a third line (Line 3) being constructed and set to open by 2018.
Where will it go?
The first stage of construction is currently underway, which will eventually cover a total of 75 stations. This won’t be all at once, however – in fact, it’s unlikely to all be completed until 2029. But by then it will cover much of Dubai and most importantly link up with Abu Dhabi metro too. Before that, though, you’ll see extension into Sharjah and Ajman in 2016 and 2018 respectively.
How many lines are there?
As of January 2018, there are two lines: Red and Green. The Red Line runs from Nakheel Harbour & Tower to Al Rigga, with 19 stations in total; 16 above ground and 3 underground. The Green Line will be a three-station extension of Red Line to JLT (Jumeirah Lake Towers). After that, there are plans for four new lines: Purple (2010), Yellow (2017), Orange (2020) and Blue (2021).
How often do trains run?
The Dubai metro schedule provides comprehensive information on all trains and their arrival times. The exact time depends on various factors, such as how far a stop is from your destination. Generally, you can expect to see a train every 3-5 minutes during peak hours and between 5-10 minutes at other times of day. Most of the major stations are located near key areas of interest, so it’s easy to get off in whichever area you need to be in.
What stops are there on each line?
The red line will eventually have 31 stops; it’s currently running with 19, including Jumeirah Lakes Towers, World Trade Centre and Rashidiya. The Green Line has 16 stops in all. Currently, there are six open stations: Emirates Towers, Mall of Emirates, Al Rigga, Burjuman Center (transfer to Red Line), Khalid Bin Al Waleed (transfer to Red Line) and Dubai Healthcare City.
When does the expansion start and finish?
Most of these stations are expected to be completed by 2020, with final touches and testing scheduled for completion in early 2021. If you’re taking a trip through Dubai or planning a visit over those two years, plan your itinerary to make sure you don’t miss out on any of these stations. And if you do manage to visit them all before they open, be sure to let us know how long it took you—and what modes of transportation you used to get there (an Emirates A380 ride?
