The project consists of 2.8 km connection between Bluewaters Islands developed by Meraas Holdings and Nakheel Harbor and Tower Metro Station.
It consists in an Autonomous Vehicle System featuring 25 driverless GRT vehicles capable of carrying 24 passengers each. The capacity will capable of carrying more than 2,000passengers per hour per direction. The trip time will be approximately 5 minutes. The energy of the battery operated vehicles will be topped-off during the stops at stations, with a longer recharge at the maintenance and charging facilities.
The project is considered a pioneer project in Dubai in terms of: environment friendly and demand responsive small transit transportation system, state-of-the-art engineering and technical challenges; an architectural showpiece, and its direct role in providing social benefits.
The Bluewaters GRT meets the international standards and best practices for managing environment and energy and ensures that it is socially responsible.
The project is due for completion in December 2019.
