The Green Line is one of the two lines on the Dubai Metro (the other is the Red Line). It opened in September 2011.
There are 20 stations on the Green Line. 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 (8 statons between Abu Baker Al Siddique and 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. 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 5.30 am to 1 am, Friday 10 am to 1 am, and Saturday through Wednesday 5.30 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. The start time for other days was brought forward in November 2017.
