Dubai Metro Green Line

The Green Line is one of the two lines on the Dubai Metro (the other is the Red Line). It opened in September 2011.

The line runs from Etisalat Metro Station in Al Qusais to Creek Metro Station, passing through the densely populated areas of Deira and Bur Dubai.

All 20 stations are now open. There are two transfer stations where passengers can transfer to the Red Line; Union and BurJuman (formerly Khalid Bin Al Waleed). 5 miles of the line (from Abu Baker Al Siddique to Oud Metha) is underground.

Drivers can park their cars at the park and ride facility at Etisalat Metro Station. There are spaces for around 2,300 cars and parking is free for Metro passengers.


Trains run every 4 minutes during peak hours and every 7 minutes at other times.

Timings for the Green Line are Thursday 5.50 am to 1 am, Friday 10 am to 1 am, and Saturday through Wednesday 5.50 am until midnight. The Friday timetable for Green Line trains was changed at the beginning of October 2015. Prior to this, trains started running at 1 pm on Friday.

    How to get to Gold Souk from Dubai Mall via Metro?

    • Editor says

      Take the Red Line from Dubai Metro to BurJuman. Change to the Green Line and get off at Al Ras.

  2. Natalie says

    We’re going to be staying in an apartment at the Dubai Marina. Will we need to use the Green Line to travel to the Gold Souk?

  3. Editor says

    Al Jadaf and Creek stations opened in February 2014. All stations on the Green Line are now operational.

    • Dr Abdur-Rashid says

      Is there any plan to link Dubai International City by Metro? If so when would be able to travel to and from from our residence. Please reply soon. Thanks.

      • Editor says

        The Green Line is supposed to be extended to International City by 2020 according to the information I’ve seen.
