The plan aims to expand the number of Dubai Metro stations to 96 stations covering an area of 140 square kilometers by 2030, and to 140 stations covering 228 square kilometers by 2040.

Currently, the Dubai Metro comprises 35 stations on the Red Line, 20 stations on the Green Line, and 11 stations on the Dubai Tram line.

The Blue Line


Currently planned with 14 stations, the Blue Line is expected to be completed by 2029. It will consist of two main routes extending from the Red and Green lines, providing a direct link between Dubai International Airport (DXB).

The new stations will include Dubai Festival City, Dubai Creek Harbour, Mirdif City Centre, Ras al Khor Industrial Area, Dubai International City, Al Warqa’a, Academic City, and Dubai Silicon Oasis.

According to HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director General, Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads & Transport Authority, “2024 is set to mark the commencement of the Dubai Metro Blue Line project, which will stretch over a total of 30 km, with 15.5 km running underground and 14.5 km above ground.”

This rail development aligns with the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, which aims to rejuvenate and consolidate facilities in key Dubai communities, while also integrating plans for the city’s transport system.
