Following on the tracks of the Dubai Tram launch, the next mode of transport is shifting gear as a world-class trolley system makes headway for Downtown.
A seven-kilometre track will mark the journey for the Dubai Trolley, an electric-powered hop-on hop-off transit system, being navigated by master developer Emaar Properties.
Dubai Trolley is expected to serve as an easy-to-access connecting link between the various attractions in Downtown Dubai including the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Mall.
Aligned along Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the first phase of Dubai Trolley will cover a distance of one-kilometre, comprising three stations to offer passengers easy access to The Dubai Mall, and The Address Downtown Dubai and Vida Downtown Dubai hotels.
The first phase is scheduled for completion early next year.
In an earlier Emirates 24|7 report, sources close to the project stated the Dubai Trolley will function down a single track; at a later stage, the track will be extended to circle The Dubai Mall in its entirety.
