Dubai Metro

One of the latest toys in Dubai's futuristic sandbox is also the first urban train network in the Arabian Peninsula, and an essential addition to the city's public infrastructure. After the first section of the Red Line opened at 9:09:09 PM on September 9, 2009, more than 110,000 people, or nearly 10 per cent of Dubai's population, used the Metro in its first two days of operation. It features VIP carriges as well as dedicated women only cars, with some lavish station designs and, needless to say, ample air conditioning.
