The Al Sufouh Tramway which this new tram route is called is a new DUBAI TRAM that will be 14.6 km with 19 stations planned and the first phase opens on November this year.
Some nice facts about this new Tram system in Dubai:

– Most of the southern loop through Jumeirah Beach will be elevated
– The trains will be44 m long, 7-section Citadis 402trams from Alstom: 11 for the first phase (14 to be added for the second phase).
This tram route is now in full operation in Dubai. It got one of the biggest air condition fans both at the stations and inside the tram wagons. The route is very nicely made. However, it is very protected. Maybe too much?
It is great to see Dubai having a tram route. It runs on the shoreline of Dubai.
