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 in Al Jaddaf. It passes north of Dubai International Airport and then through the densely populated areas of Deira and Bur Dubai.

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 stations 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. The other stations with large car parks are Centrepoint and Jabal Ali; both on the Red Line.

Al Jadaf Marine Transport Station is situated near Creek Metro Station (the southern terminus of the Green Line). Abras leave from here and cross the Dubai Creek for Dubai Festival City.

The Dubai Roads and Transport Authority has plans to extend the Green Line to Dubai Creek Harbour and the International City area.

Bus Stations

Dubai’s biggest bus stations are located near Green Line stations.

Al Ghubaiba Bus Station is near Al Ghubaiba Metro Station. Gold Souq Bus Station is close to Gold Souq Metro Station.

Bus stations offer public transport services to areas not covered by Dubai Metro stations.

Dubai Tram

The Green Line is not directly connected to the Dubai Tram.

To connect to the Dubai Tram, transfer to the Red Line and travel to SOBHA Realty or DMCC.


Timings for the Green Line are now the same as the Red Line:

  • Monday – Thursday – 5:00 am to 1:15 am (following day)
  • Friday and Saturday – 5:00 am to 2:15 am (following day)
  • Sunday – 8:00 am to 1:15 am (following day)

Trains run every 5 or 6 minutes during peak hours and every 10 minutes at other times.

The journey time along the entire Green Line is around 40 minutes.

Dubai Metro timings were changed at the beginning of 2022 when the city changed its weekend from Friday/Saturday to Saturday/Sunday.
