UAE Dubai launches Dubai Metro

on Sunday, September 13, 2009

Dubai made history with the opening of the Metro system at 9pm on Wednesday. The world's largest automated driverless Metro system has been built by 30,000 workers at an unprecedented pace and will serve around 1.2 million passengers every day.
Dubai: With the launching of the first Metro in the Gulf region, Dubai has achieved a never before attempted milestone - the world's longest automated driverless train system built in just four years.

"The completion of such a massive project in a short period of time speaks volumes about Dubai's economic strength and its commitment to the development of the city regardless of the global economic crisis," said Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA).
