Dubai Metro Versus Vancouver Skytrain

794 views Since it was Spewed out 8 years, 8 months ago at 10:56 am

The Dubai Metro opened just under a month ago on 09.09.09 at 09.09.09 PM to coincide with the launch of the Beetles Rockband game.  Just kidding about that last part.

For those of you interested in transit and trains and what not, the building of the Dubai Metro is absolutely amazing. In just 4 years they built and completed the main line. Compare this to the long awaited second avenue subway line in New York City.

Did I mention it is a fully automated line?  What saddens me is that once the green line opens which adds another 20 km of track, Vancouver will no longer hold the title of World’s Longest Automated Metro Line ousted by just 3km.  Check out this awesome time-lapse video of the Dubai Metro:

Strangely Interesting

  • Check this out. Someone took the time to draw a pic of Homer Simpson purely in CSS.

  • Not feeling safe at night? How about a table that turns into a shield and bat?

  • Seeing as I will most likely never climb Everest, this will have to do.  Someone has kindly created this 360 Degree panorama of the view from the top.
