Jumeirah Palm Island monorail in Dubai

The Jumeirah Palm monorail in Dubai was launched in May 2009 on the Jumeirah Palm Island and ferries commuters and tourists between the Atlantis hotel resort Aquaventure Park at one end of the island, and Gateway Towers at the entrance to the island, next to the One&Only Royal Mirage hotel. The train is elevated so passengers can get a good view over the Palm Island as they travel along. The opening of the monorail is significant as it is reportedly the first time public railway transport of this nature has started running in the UAE, the Gulf, and the Middle East.

Ticket Prices Hours Train frequency Journey length Stations
AED 15 one way 0800-2200 15-30 mins 5-10 mins one way Gateway Towers
AED 25 return 7 days   5.45 km one way Atlantis Aquaventure

For public transport to the Atlantis hotel, it is presently easier to catch a taxi to or from either Dubai Internet City or Nakheel metro station and use the Dubai Metro. There is no public bus service to the Atlantis resort, and no easy bus or metro connection to the Palm Monorail Gateway station on the mainland, however after November 2014 the Dubai Tram will have a connecting station. RTA bus routes near the Palm Gateway station are 8, X28, 84, 88 but you'll have to walk 10-20 mins along Al Sufouh Rd, or into Dubai Internet City or Knowledge Village to find the nearest bus stop, which is ok in winter but uncomfortably hot in summer.
