Nakheel recently opened the Palm Monorail in Dubai. The monorail, which is now running four trains between the Gateway Towers and Atlantis stations, has a capacity of 2,400 passengers per hour per day.

The service runs from 8:00am-10:00pm daily with tickets costing AED15 for a single journey and AED25 for a round trip.

 The system will be increased to a total of nine trains per hour with a capacity of 6,000 passengers per hour per day once connected to the Dubai Metro.

State-of-the-art technology has been employed to overcome a number of challenges including running 1,000m of rail over-sea, meeting Dubai's unique climatic conditions, and protecting the communities of Palm Jumeirah from noise pollution by using a virtually silent track system.

Developed by a consortium of leading international companies, led by the Marubeni Corporation, the Palm Monorailís system is fully automatic and driverless, although an attendant will be on board at all times.
