Best metro system in the world

The system is so efficient and metro staff are incredibly helpful. Trains are incredibly clean and always on time. Goes to all the important places in Dubai for a low cost.

Metro stations are far away from many of the attractions in Dubai. If you go to Dubai mall station e.g. you have to walk 20 minutes in the air conditioned walkway to actually reach the mall. What's the sense in that? In many other stations you also have to walk 5-10 minutes to just reach the exit for the station.... More

i used the metro from Dubai mall to jumeirah area. The walking was very long. It took more than 15 minutes. Vehicles were good but overcrowded with a lot of blue collars. Smell from some was really bad. Seating was limited. Actually all the trip I was standing. I was offered the VIP carriage which I declined but was sorry... More

The Dubai metro is a world class facility offering safe, clean, quick and modern transportation across the Emirate. It's great to be able to avoid the dangerous driving one experiences each time he takes ro the highway in Dubai. The only downside is its limited coverage and timing but I hope these will be improved during subsequent expansions.

It's very clean, safe, cheap, and fast. However, it won't take you to all places in Dubai. They really need to expand the Metro system.

Metro is convenient and is good value for the money, it connects to all malls except oasis and mirdiff. It offers special cabins for ladies and children which is good. However metro has to match its timing with the closing timing of the malls and need to extend its to timing a bit.
