Good news from Dubai to Abu Dhabi

(Cross posted here)

This is great news! Competition amongst the Emirates? It's also great that they will be linked. So often we see great projects in individual Emirates but poor coordination at a federal level. I'm proud.

Let's wait and see and hopefully the end result will be something to be even more proud of!

Do I see a joint Dubai-AD taxi strike looming?

Why a taxi strike when the govt. owns the taxi service throughout the emirates? Duh...
Anyway, good that Abu Dhabi is becoming Abu Dubai.

Government does not own taxi service between the Emirates. At least not the last time I read about it. That's what the poster was referring to I think - that they might protest an interemirates rail system.

What protesting would gain them is another question.

I would love to try this one day! I would prefere to use the metro for quick trips to Dubai for business or even for shopping. Thanks for sharing this great news! :)

Mr Chilton, thanks for clarifying that :)

fahad, it's good news indeed that these things are being looked at at a federal rather than at a city level. I look forward to the day I can go from Fujeirah to AD without using a drop of petrol or having to hear one taxi honk at me.
