Emaar Properties has today announced the roll out of the Dubai Trolley. The Trolley is moving along Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai and is the region’s first-of-its-kind hop-on hop-off transit system that will offer free access for visitors and residents to several iconic attractions in Downtown Dubai 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.
As part of the initial phase, the driver-operated Dubai Trolley which travels at a speed of 10km/h will traverse a distance of 1km, offering hop-on hop-offs at three hotels – The Address Downtown Dubai, Vida Downtown Dubai and Manzil Downtown Dubai.
Operational from 4pm to midnight on weekdays and from 3pm to 11pm on weekends, the double-decker trolley tram can carry up to 50 passengers.
Three Dubai Trolley stations have also opened and are located near The Address Downtown Dubai, Vida Downtown Dubai and Manzil Downtown Dubai. The Trolley Terminus near Old Town Island will feature F&B offerings.
When fully operational, Dubai Trolley will eventually span 7km across the entire breadth of Downtown Dubai. Several crossings have been provided along the tramway to safe pedestrian traffic.
