DUBAI METRO – My First Journey.

Dubai Metro Photos - during my first Journey

Dubai Metro, the worlds longest automated driverless train system was launched on 09.09.09 at 09.09 PM by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.

A long awaited day from last few years, while reading in the media and watching personally the construction of the metro, so many times I dreamed to travel in Dubai Metro but not sure will I stay in UAE or not until it completion. Finally nothing happened I am still in UAE and traveled in Dubai Metro on the next day of it started services for public i.e. on 11.09.2009.

I started my Journey from the Mall of the Emirates Station to Al Rashidiya, I was amazed after see the crowd there and little bit felt, may be it is not possible to me on that day. But I moved along with the crowd slowly up to the ticket counter and purchased one NOL card, swipe the card at entrance and went on top to station. After few minutes our Dream metro train arrived, but too much rush, I thought not to go in that and asked to the Metro Staff there when is the next train they told me in 10 min. I started capturing the movements at station and waiting for the next train and it was arrived on exact time and luckily I got the standing place at front coach Where I can see the running movement of the train and all surrounding locations, as I had shot the some of below pictures while in running train from the front glass of the Metro. See the pictures......

It was a wonderful experience to me since I was in UAE I had seen Dubai from the roads only this is the first time to me to enjoy Ariel view of the City, the Satwa area looks tremendous and also the Dubai Airport looks great through Metro Train and you will never forget the amazing experience of the long tunnel journey between Al Jafeliya and Diera Centre Stations it is amazing.

No Doubt.. People will be habituated with Dubai Metro Very soon.
