The RTA has always had a plan that there would be different phases in the development and expansion of the Dubai Tram system.
Although there were some hold ups on the construction of the tram initially during the financial crisis, plans are still ongoing to extend the tram to other areas. Phase 2 of Dubai Tram plans to extend to tourist destinations like the Burj al Arab, Madinat Jumeirah and Mall of the Emirates.
This would once again link the tram up with the Dubai metro which would give users more options in covering further areas of Dubai using public transport.
Tenders are currently being sought for the construction of phase 2 and further announcements will be made by the RTA in due course.
Phase 3 of the Tram is also in the planning stage and could see the extension of the line to 2nd December Street.
