It's official! The Dubai Metro Map 2021 has been published and is now available in PDF form from the RTA website . For those of you who don't know what this means, here's a quick summary of the new map in 2021... Also take some time to look through the new map on your own and comment below what do you think about it? Do you like it? What could be changed? How would you improve the map? We'd love to hear from you! :)
How to download the new metro map
As of January 2019, there are 9 metro lines and they cover a total of 150km, with an estimated increase to 200km by 2021. The official map (in Arabic) can be downloaded here but I have created a version that can be downloaded/viewed on any device and at any time. All you need to do is download it here , save it to your phone or computer and you’re good to go!
What the new metro map includes
The new metro map shows that several new stops are going to be added: Qasr Al Bahr and Al Burj (at Jumeriah Park) on Red Line; Discovery Gardens and Arabian Ranches 1 & 2 on Green Line; Motor City, Sheikh Zayed Rd. (and its various connecting stations), Umm Suqeim and Marina stations on both lines; JLT and Mall of Emirates on Blue Line. In addition, a few changes have been made to some existing stations: Deira City Centre station has been moved from being between Al Rigga and Union Square stations on Red Line to being between Union Square and Creek Station on Green Line; Business Bay station has been renamed as Nakheel Harbour & Tower station. All these additions/changes should make it easier for tourists visiting Dubai or residents commuting within Dubai to use public transport.
Why this metro map will make getting around easier than ever
The new metro map shows you what your route will look like, when it’s about to change, and where you’ll need to transfer. Here’s an example of what a morning commute from Jumeirah Lakes Towers to Sharjah might look like with Metro.ae... and here’s how to read that same trip on our new metro map: Skip transfers by using Line 1 or 2 as much as possible: When planning your journey, try to use one line as much as possible.
Some quick tips on using the new metro map
To get to Al Barsha from Global Village, you have to use a combination of a red line and an orange line train. To take that trip, you need to disembark at Nakheel Harbour & Tower station and transfer stations on an out-of-system interconnecting service between Green Line and Orange Line. You'll also want to pay careful attention to where your transfers are permitted as some stations do not allow interchanges with other lines.
