The Dubai Metro is a driverless, fully automated metro network in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai. The Red Line is partly operational, the Green Line is still under construction, and further lines are planned. These first two lines run underground in the city centre and on elevated viaducts elsewhere. All trains and stations are air conditioned with platform edge doors to make this possible. The Dubai Metro is currently operated by a joint organisation of the Roads and Transport Authority and the Serco Group. The first section of the Red Line, covering 10 stations, was ceremonially inaugurated at 9:09:09 PM on September 9, 2009, by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai, with the line opening to the public at 6 AM on September 10. The Dubai Metro is the first urban train network in the Arabian Peninsula. Once the 20 km Green line opens, the Dubai Metro will overtake the title of longest automated metro network from the Vancouver Skytrain, surpassing it by 3 km. More than 110,000 people, which is nearly 10 per cent of Dubai's population, used the Metro in its first two days of operation[6], and almost 367,000 passengers ride Dubai metro in its first week. Mall of the Emirates was the most used station with 7,911 passengers, followed by Khalid bin Al Waleed Station with 6,529 passengers. *** Le metro de Dubai est un un reseau de lignes de metro automatique en construction qui desservira la ville de Dubai aux emirats Arabes Unis.
