    That was great. What I liked was the buildings set right up to the track. As good an example of transit oriented development that you’re going to see.

    In Dubai, the buildings came first, but it is a good example.

    Just as an FYI… The actual trains only go about 60 MPH. This is a sped-up video. 818 MPH is faster than the speed of sound, not going to happen with trains anytime soon.

    From Wikipedia:

    “Maximum speed of the trains will be 90 km/h, giving a round-trip time of 2 h 23 min for the Red Line and 1 h 23 min for the Green Line.”
