Next week marks official launch of Dubai Tram

The Dubai Tram is set to open to the public next Wednesday, a day after its official inauguration and launch.

The National reported that there will be four ticket validation machines on each platform, where nol cards must be scanned before boarding the tram- the same system used for the Dubai Metro.

Silver nol card users will pay Dh3 for traveling along the tram route that loops along a single zone from Al Sufouh to Palm Jumeirah, and on to Media City and Dubai Maina, then through to Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR).

The Al Sufouh Tram is the first of its kind outside of Europe to be powered by a ground-based electric supply network.
