 The Dubai tramway is the first tram in the world able to run in temperatures of up to 50 °C (122 °F) and to withstand harsh climate conditions. Equipped with APS ground-level power supply, the system is also the first in the world to be catenary-free all along the line, enabling perfect integration of the tramway into the cityscape.
