United Arab Emirates Etihad Rail PJSC

Etihad Rail was established in June 2009 under Federal Law no. 2, with a mandate to manage the development, construction and operation of the UAE’s national freight and passenger railway network.

The railway network will be built in phases to link the principal centres of population and industry of the UAE, as well as to form a vital part of the planned GCC railway network linking the six countries of the GCC: The Kingdom of Bahrain, The State of Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and UAE.

Built to international standards, Etihad Rail's state-of-the-art network will act as a catalyst for economic growth and sustained social development. Once complete, the railway will redefine logistics and transport in the region; thus providing a modern, safe, efficient and sustainable network which will connect the UAE and its regions to its neighbouring GCC countries.

Etihad Rail PJSC develops, constructs, and operates a freight and passenger railway network. It provides passenger services; freight services; and property development, telecommunications, terminal, and advertising services. Etihad Rail PJSC was formerly known as Union Railway Company and changed its name to Etihad Rail PJSC in March 2011. The company was founded in 2009 and is based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
