The Palm Jumeirah Monorail is a monorail running down the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah, Dubai’s first artificial island.
At the time of writing (May 2018) three stations are open:
Nakheel Mall Station and The Pointe Station will open when developments near them are completed.
There is no direct connection between the Dubai Metro and the Palm Jumeirah Monorail.
There is, however, a link with the Dubai Tram system via a footbridge between Gateway Station and Palm Jumeirah Tram Station. The Dubai Tram network is connected to the Dubai Metro at two stations; Dubai Marina Tram Station and Jumeirah Lakes Towers Tram Station.
Tickets to ride the Palm Jumeirah Monorail are fairly expensive when compared to the cost of riding the Dubai Metro or the Dubai Tram.
A one-way ticket currently costs 20 AED. A return ticket costs 30 AED. Children under 90 cm ride free. There are no other concessions.
The Palm Jumeirah Monorail is owned by Nakheel and does not fall under the jurisdiction of the Dubai Roads and Transport Authority (RTA). Their Nol Cards cannot be used.
Hours of operation are currently 9 am to 10 pm daily. The journey takes around 10 minutes with departures every 15 minutes.
