The shopping malls and leisure subsidiary of Emaar Properties has introduced air-conditioned trolley buses, each with a capacity of 25 passengers to enhance the ease of access for visitors to Downtown Dubai.

The 500-acre mega-development in the heart of Dubai features several must-visit tourist attractions including Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination, and The Dubai Fountain, the world’s tallest performing fountain.

Important hub

A hub for leisure, shopping, hospitality, entertainment, business and modern living, Downtown Dubai also has six world-class hotels including the world’s first Armani Hotel Dubai in Burj Khalifa, which also features At.mosphere, the world’s highest restaurant located on Level 122 of the tower.

A magnet for leisure and business visitors, the flagship development of Emaar also has a vibrant business park, the Emaar Square, and several residential communities. The trolley buses have been envisaged as a vital link for tourists and guests in the various hotels of Downtown Dubai to tour the development in a convenient hop-on/hop-off fashion with the purchase of one ticket for a day.

Nasser Rafi, Chief Executive Officer, Emaar Malls Group, said: “The addition of the trolley buses in Downtown Dubai will significantly enhance the ease of accessibility of tourists as well as ease the traffic during peak hours. The high-quality buses, specially designed for Downtown Dubai, highlight our commitment to offer our visitors the opportunity to experience every tourist attraction in the development at their leisurely pace.”
