Sadly not running

This is a very nice “old style” tram which used to run a short distance up and down the Boulevard near The Palace Hotel.

Sadly it’s not been operating for quite a while now but occasionally hosts pop up cafes in front of it.

Worth a quick look if you’re in the Downtown area…

Little to recommend apart from the novelty factor

The Dubai Trolley operates along the Mohammad bin Rashid boulevard next to the Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall. It has a beautiful red livery and a polite staff. One can board this trolley and click some pics of Downtown Dubai.

Apart from this, there is nothing much here. The ride is free, but not a must-do. One can take it once while waiting for the fountain show.

The Trolley
Jul 2017 • Family
We took a ride on the Dubai Trolley last night. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, and assisted us to the upstairs seating area. The was no cost to use the service, and we were the only passengers at the time.

Not running at the moment

The website for this operation has no operating information, which is a pity as the 'trolley' appears to run if and only if they feel like it.
We went out there to see it, only to find a rope across the station entrance saying it wasn't running. (station closest to Dubai Mall)

Taped up on the station itself was a sign saying it started at 6pm. Some Internet sources say 4pm.

The rails were rusty - it hasn't run for weeks or even months.

The trolley depot (approx half way) is a glass structure so I saw the trolley - sitting inside it's shed with 'do not move, trolley under maintenance' signs hung on it.

Its lights were on. But even the depot access track showed little signs of recent use.

I suspect the Trolley's owner (large Dubai property developer), only operates in in the 'tourist' season. By August the bulk of the tourist trade is gone from Dubai as it's way too hot in summer. (It was 43°C when we were there.)

So don't go out there expecting a ride on this fake vintage 'trolley'. It may not actually be running. There appears to be no way to know this before you actually trek out there.

Joy ride
Apr 2016 • Solo
A very convenient way to move around the boulevard in downtown Dubai. It is a beautiful train which charges absolutely nothing. Views from the upper deck are fabulous and one can enjoy the cool breeze. It starts at 4 pm and continues its trips till midnight. At least during weekends it should start earlier say 11 am or so.

Nice little ride through the street
Nov 2015 • Family
We came across this trolley by chance when we were sitting having a coffee. Good experience to sit on and just have a run up from where we were staying to the Dubai mall.

Was expecting a bit more of track for what it was, would have been nice if the tram Trollope went all the way round the burj estate. But none the less this was a lovely ride from trams our cafe tot he mall.

Have the choice of sitting down stairs or you can go up stairs and sit and watch the area go past.

Lovely restored trolley guys on board were really friendly gave a bit a tourist tour guide along the route.

Free of charge really nice just to sit and use even if it is only for a few mins

Great Service at no cost!!!!
Mar 2016 • Friends
We recently decided to hop on the Dubai Trolley. Met a lovely gentleman outside the station. Asked for ticket price and he said this service is free for all. 3 stops...breathtaking views of downtown Dubai including Burj Khalifa, seats on the front row upper deck, made a very memorable trip. A great opportunity for photos too.
