Dubai Tram Map

With Dubai Tram opening in November 2014, the first phase of the project covered 11 stations. The detailed RTA route map is shown further down below but here is a simplified version of the Dubai Tram route map so that you can easily see the Dubai Tram stations that are operational and the directions that the trams will travel around the system.

As of 2016 there is just one route as shown below:

dubai-tram-1route

The tram goes in one direction around the JBR area, as the small loop route was discontinued due to under use a while ago.

The Dubai Tram route means that the trams themselves can travel in a complete loop from the Al Sufouh depot and back again.

As you can see from the map, you can interchange with the Dubai Metro at Dubai Marina and Jumeirah Lakes Towers and also with the Palm Monorail at Palm Jumeirah station. There is a short walk that also involves a lift to get from the tram to the metro/monorail.

Al-Sufouh-Tram

Al Sufouh Tram Route Map

So this is the RTA route map for the Al Sufouh Tram project. As you can see the tramway runs through Jumeirah Beach Residence for about one kilometre and has two stations in that area.

The route goes from Al Sufouh and heads up to the elevated section that runs along the Sheikh Zayed Road side of the Dubai Marina section. The tram route here is an add on to the road that runs along the back of the marina and there are 3 stations along this part of the route. Two of those stations link up with the Dubai Metro at the Dubai Marina station and the Jumeirah Lake Towers station.

There are 6 further stations that run from the marina along Al Sufouh Road just past Knowledge Village and this is where the first phase of the Al Sufouh Tram route stops. There is then a depot in Al Sufouh. Station 9 links up with the Palm Monorail at the foot of the Palm Jumeirah. This is  good news for the Palm Monorail particularly as it may mean that more people are able to commute using public transport from the Palm (although the price of Palm Monorail tickets will likely have to come down at this point to make it feasible as a commuting option and this doesn’t seem likely to happen at any time in the near future).

Phase two of the Al Sufouh Tram Route will also link up with the Dubai Metro station at Mall of the Emirates.

    Hello there! Can you tell me how trams vehicles there are in the fleet? And how many are in operation at any one time? And how long I would expect to be waiting at any particular station before a tram arrives?
    Thanks a lot

      Hi, I believe there are 11 trams in the fleet but I can’t tell you how many are operating at any one time. Trams operate at approximately every 8 minutes.

      Hi and sorry for the delay in replying, for some reason I did not get notification of your comment. Anyway, to get to Knowledge Village from Rashidiya you should take the metro to internet City metro station and then you can walk through to knowledge Village. You could go to the marina and change to the tram and then take the tram to Knowledge Village which would get you closer but take longer.

      The tram will only take you as far as the entry to the Palm and then you will likely have to get a taxi from there (unless they run a bus service to and from the hotel)

    Hi, I am local from Dubai and I am using the Metro and Tram everyday on my way to BBR,
    the problem i am facing is that there is not enough tramp station and why we have to change the station to station ? Why the tram is not going in one line, it’s not convenience, many tourists and passengers are lost, also its very slow , I think I should be faster , I hope it will change and it will be more easy

    HI admin, I am at Knowledge Village Dubai, if I want to catch a metro instead of walking all the way from where I am to Internet City Metro station, can I take tram from Knowledge Village station, drop at Marina Tram station, take a red line Metro to continue with my trip, is it worth, roughly what’s the cost.
    Thanks.

      Yes there is no reason why you can’t do that – as it is all in the same zone it should only cost 3 dirhams with a silver Nol card.

    I have a guest from Bahrain to visit UAE. I would like to travel Dubai Tram through Dubai Metro and to visit Atlantis to introduce them the features of Tram, Metro & Dubai.
    Kindly provide the easy way to follow.

      Hi, if you take the Metro to the Marina and then change on to the Tram there, then take the Tram to the Palm Gateway and get the Monorail to Atlantis from there.

    Hi,

    I was looking at your map and I’m not sure whether the arrows are all going the correct way. I stay near that Marina Towers station and have taken the tram only twice. Both times, I have travelled to JBR and both times, the route the tram has taken has been via 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 (in that sequence). On your map, the sequence is going the other way?

    Happy to be corrected if I’m wrong but I’m not sure I can get to JBR (station 1) from Marina Towers?

    Are all stations and the tram itself wheelchair accessible? Especially the Stations Media City and Marina Mall?

    Thanks

      Yes they are and I have used those two stations with a pushchair (obviously not quite the same) – the only issue is at Marina Mall if you want to go to the Mall itself, where you have to pretty much walk/wheel along the car upramp and negotiate a couple of kerbs if I remember rightly to get to the Mall Entrance. Also it does rely upon the lifts working too.

      The Marina Towers station is the nearest to the Torch building I would say, I think it would only be a short walk from there.

      I don’t know, you will need to contact the RTA, I see no reason why they wouldn’t have them though, although I would expect Emiratis to take preference.
