Breaking: The Unofficial Dubai Metro Website is Now Live (@dubaimetro)

Along with the launch of Dubai Metro today, Dubai’s biggest infrastructure project, Flip Media unveiled, a non profit portal designed and developed to provide residents of Dubai with a practical and usable guide to all things related to the Metro.

This community portal offers key information and helpful tools such as a journey planner and fare calculator, information about each station stop as well as downloadable pocket maps. This portal allows user-generated content by giving users ability to post comments, blog and share photos and useful tips about the metro.  The website looks scalable, allowing for the addition of new technology and tools.

Yousef Tuqan Tuqan, CEO, Flip Media said in a press release “We saw a gap in the market where people, including ourselves, were curious and hungry for more information about the Metro.”

Also Dinesh Lalvani, Managing Partner of Flip added, “We’re bringing the best of web and technology to help people discover not only the basic information about the services available, but also help connect with fellow commuters. The idea is to make the metro not just about the destination but also about the journey and experience.”

This website has set-up a twitter account couple of days ago, you can now follow their updates @dxbmetro.
