The metro is amazing, spotlessly clean, very safe and even has specific carriages for women and children. This metro is very easy to use, only two lines, but can be slower than a taxi, depending on where your going and does not stop at all main attractions, we found it good to mix and match the travel to suit our...

Very high quality and amazingly clean compared to many countries. Blow up the gum is forbidden. Metro is very cheap. You can ride by paying only 5 dirhams. (Approx. 1 USD). For example, only 7 dirhams to the Dubai Mall. (1.30~ USD) (Two way) In addition, taxis are very cheap and luxury.

These are driverless, so sit at the front and you get a fab view as you travel. Get a one day ticket, you pay 2 dirham for the card, and 14 dirham for unlimited travel. You can't eat, drink or chew gum on the metro, so it is spotless. The only thing to be careful of is that some of... More

Great alternative to a taxi especially travelling across Dubai, you can buy tickets at the stations or get a NOL card and load it up, their version of the Oyster card. Very clean and efficient trains.

Used the metro whilst on our visit to Dubai. It was a very easy to use - ticket staff very helpful advising you of best routes and ticket prices. The system is ultra modern, very clean and safe.

The metro comes every five minutes Be aware that on Fridays the metro doesn't run until 1pm but all... More

I travel a lot in Dubai metro, not for daily commuting but to visit mall and places in dubai. Metro is well connected with feeder buses and very nice friendly, easy access, nice ambiance etc few to mention in dubai metro. Please avoid the rush hours since it may get crowded very much.

Clean, efficient frequent, but very busy in rush hours, and not very pleasant! Less discipline than other metros in allowing people off before they get on! Cheap, but so are taxis, particularly if there are three or four of you!

Clean, efficient, air-conditioned. But the frequency between two trains should be increased to provide more space to sit during the journey.
