Dubai Metro Green Line to Launch Tomorrow

The green line of the the Dubai Metro will be open to the public as of September 9th 2011.  The line is said to have an estimated 15-20 minutes travel time within the network.  This is nearly half  of the travel time it presently takes on the cramped roads of the Central Business Districts. 

According to Matar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Directors at the RTA, the Green Line will have a greater impact than the Red line had.  The 22 km green line, passes through the heart of the city, connecting government offices as well as touching important landmarks and locations.
