    Add Your Photos

    We have created a gallery page for the Dubai Tram where viewers can add their own photos. You can upload them from now onwards although we would expect that there will be many more photos added once the tram starts operations on 11 November. Photos are added through a simple upload process but do need to be approved before they are published into the gallery. This will be done as quickly as possible so that we can build up a nice gallery of Dubai Tram pictures for people around the world to browse. So feel free to upload and share. The Dubai Tram gallery can be found here.
