“Dubai Municipality has a tremendous challenge to cope with over the next 15 years,” continued Elshabani. “The road network in Dubai has grown from 200 kilometers in 1964 to 9,100 kilometers in 2004, and average daily trips will grow from 3.1 million per day today to 13.1 million in 2020. With this in mind, we can see how important the Dubai Metro will become.”

The metro system will be divided between two lines, Red and Green, and built in two phases. In the year 2020, the Red line will have a capacity of 16,792 passengers per hour per direction (PPHPD) while the Green 10,688 PPHPD, with the ultimate aim to raising these figures to 27,000 and 18,000 respectively.
