The people mover - a quiet, convenient and environmentally-friendly alternative to the car - will carry residents and visitors around each of the four zones that will make up the 200 hectare Downtown Jebel Ali development.

Salah Ameen, Project Director, Downtown Jebel Ali, said: “Downtown Jebel Ali will be a sustainable, transport-rich development where people can live, work and visit without owning a car. There are 600 million cars on our planet, and road congestion will cost more than $700 million in human efficiency over the next decade.”
