The government of Abu Dhabi is planning a tram system, as part of a broader long-term transport strategy.[1] In 2009, it was suggested that the tram system would enter service in 2014; however, nothing has materialised.[2] The network is expected to cost around $5Bn.[3]

Network[edit]

A 340 km tram network is planned.[4] The network will have three lines,[5] focussing on the CBD, with connections to Reem, Suwa, Khalifa City A and B, Al Raha beach, and Saadiyat Islands.[6]
