Dubai Metro - Fully Automated Metro Network
The Dubai Metro is a driver-less, 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 center and on elevated. All trains and stations are air conditioned with platform edge doors to make this possible.
Once the 20 km Green line opens, the Dubai Metro will overtake the title of longest fully automated metro network from the Vancouver Skytrain, surpassing it by 1 km. Planning of the Dubai Metro began under the directive of Dubai's ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who expected other projects to attract 15 million visitors to Dubai by 2010. The combination of a rapidly-growing population (expected to reach 3 million by 2017) and severe traffic congestion necessitated the building of an urban rail system to provide additional public transportation capacity, relieve motor traffic, and provide infrastructure for additional development.
