Abu Dhabi Metro Information Guide

DoT plans to develop a metro rail in Abu Dhabi as part of a master public transport plan. The project is expected to be completed by 2016.

The metro will mainly connect the proposed Central Business District with Sowwah Island, Reem Island, Saadiyat Island, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi International Airport and Masdar, Capital City District, Emerald Gateway, Zayed Sports City and ADNEC. Most of the proposed network is expected to be underground.

The monorail track (which is part of the metro project) is expected to be 31 Km long. Each monorail station is expected to handle 1,000 commuters. The monorail might also include 15 two-coach trains and 5-minute intervals between each service train and another.

Abu Dhabi Metro would be linked to Dubai Metro and to other cities in the UAE and to other GCC states.

Mott McDonnald and Steer Davies Cleave are the study consultants for the Surface Transport Master Plan of Abu Dhabi.
