Explore Downtown Dubai As Emaar Rolls Out World’s First Hydrogen- Powered Dubai Trolley

Emaar Properties has marked another achievement with the roll out of the world’s first hydrogen-powered, zero-emission street trolley tram, the Dubai Trolley.

Plying along Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard, Dubai Trolley is the region’s first-of-its-kind hop-on hop-off transit system that will offer easy and free access for visitors and residents to several iconic attractions in Downtown Dubai.

As part of the initial phase, the driver-operated Dubai Trolley will traverse a distance of 1 km, offering a relaxed transport experience for people and enhancing access to landmarks such as Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building; The Dubai Mall, the world’s most-visited and largest retail and entertainment destination, and Souk Al Bahar, an Arabesque shopping and dining destination.

Dubai Trolley also offers convenient hop-on hop-offs at three world-class hotels – The Address Downtown Dubai, Vida Downtown Dubai and Manzil Downtown Dubai, thus adding to the convenience of the hotel guests, assuring them a memorable touristic experience through the vibrant thoroughfare of the world’s most prestigious square kilometre.

Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director of Emaar Properties, said: “Dubai Trolley is another innovative addition to Downtown Dubai that also redefines the concept of urban mobility. By integrating the unmatched aesthetics of a trolley tram with a state-of-the-art locomotive system, Emaar is presenting a sustainable transport mode for visitors and residents in Downtown Dubai.

“Apart from being environmentally sustainable and enhancing the convenience of the public, it is designed to be another compelling tourist attraction in Dubai. Just as a visit to the city is not complete without a tour of Downtown Dubai, a trip on Dubai Trolley will become a must-do in the tourist itinerary.”

Operational from 4pm to midnight on weekdays and from 3pm to 11pm on weekends, the double-decker trolley tram can carry 50 passengers and is developed to the highest safety standards.  The trams have been specially designed for Emaar, and are resplendent in bright red with aesthetic gold pin-stripes and green trim colours, featuring Arabesque design elements.

Three marvelously styled Dubai Trolley stations have also opened, where visitors can relax in air-conditioned comfort. The stations, with an aesthetically appealing façade, are located near The Address Downtown Dubai, Vida Downtown Dubai and Manzil Downtown Dubai. The Trolley Terminus near Old Town Island will feature F&B offerings.

When fully operational, Dubai Trolley will eventually span 7 km across the entire breadth of Downtown Dubai. Several crossings have been provided along the tramway to safe pedestrian traffic.

Downtown Dubai is also linked to the Dubai Metro through an air-conditioned travellator. It is well-serviced by public transport including Roads & Transport Authority’s buses and taxis.

The flagship development of Emaar Properties, Downtown Dubai welcomed over 80 million visitors in 2014, and is also most sought-after residential and commercial property destination. Fascinating attractions also include The Dubai Fountain, which offers a spectacular waterfront for The Dubai Mall and Souk Al Bahar, and the recently opened At the Top, Burj Khalifa SKY, the highest outdoor observatory in the world.

 

Expert Reminds Organisations About Google Implementing The New Web sites Indexing Algorithm on 21 April 2015

Starting April 21, Google will be expanding the use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal. This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in the search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices.

According to Sharad Agarwal, CEO of Cyber Gear, “The consequences of Google’s new algorithm are huge for both, internet marketers and business owners. Companies can gain considerable advantage over competitors by optimizing their websites for mobile devices. A ‘Responsive’ site will ensure high organic rankings and enhanced visitor experience.”

A ‘Responsive’ web site automatically adapts to the device that is accessing the web site, from a mobile to a TV. Using responsive web design has multiple advantages, including:

It keeps the desktop and mobile content on a single URL, which is easier for your users to interact with, share, and link to and for Google’s algorithms to assign the indexing properties to rank content.

From Google’s standpoint, there are a few things responsive does really well. For starters, it saves resources when Googlebot crawls the site.  Rather than crawling multiple sites, the Googlebot can go to one place, which increases efficiency and helps Google index more content. It also helps Google’s algorithms more accurately assign indexing properties to a piece of content without needing to check two places.

Google is providing a free resource for web site owners to check if their site is mobile friendly: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/
