The monorail will initially shuttle up to 2,400 passengers per hour between the Gateway Station at the trunk of the man-made island and Atlantis stations at the crescent, where visitors can access the Atlantis Hotel and Aquaventure waterpark.
Four separate trains, each made up of three cars, will initially run along the 1,000m dual-track railway, with the journey between the two stations lasting nine-minutes.
The driverless-system will be increased to a total of nine trains per hour with a capacity of 6,000 people once it is connected to the Dubai Metro, which is due to open in September.
Nakheel has plans to ultimately connect the service to the Dubai Metro after the introduction of RTA's Al Sufouh tramline, which would offer direct links to Dubai International Airport.
