The Palm Monorail was opened on 30th April 2009 and runs along the trunk of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai connecting the Gateway station at the entry to the Palm to the Atlantis hotel at the far end. There are also 2 other stations along the way and an interchange station before the gateway which are completed but not yet open, although the train does stop at the stations but the doors don’t open.
The Palm Monorail is not yet linked to the Dubai Metro but there are plans to link it at the Dubai Internet City (TECOM) station on Sheikh Zayed Road. It will also be linked to the Al Sufouh Tram system which is currently under construction. This was planned to be complete by the end of 2011 but will more likely be 2014 now.
The Palm Monorail is a good vantage point to see the Palm Jumeirah. It is often used by tourists staying at the Atlantis hotel to get a good view of the island and it also takes you from the far end of the island to the main part of Dubai where it links in with Al Sufouh Road (and eventually the metro and tram).
The Palm Monorail does not currently link with the Dubai Metro and so if you want to travel along it from the Dubai end then you will either have to a) park in the massive car park at the Gateway station, b) get a taxi to the Gateway station or c) use the free shuttle bus service.
This website is not linked to Nakheel and is not an official site for the Palm Monorail, it is just intended to provide relevant information for those wishing to use it.
Please, before you ask questions, take a look round the site as most answers can be found on here and although I don’t mind answering them, it can be frustrating when the info is already on here
