The metro system is a godsend in Dubai with stops in almost all of the must see areas! The only advice I would give is when buying tickets from the machines always take a reciept as sometimes the tickets don't work and you have to pay again and check we took a tram from Jumeirah beach with a pushchair and...

I paid more than 200 USD on taxi service in dubai, dont do that mistake and take the metro as it will take you anywhere within dubai and afterwards take the taxi. this will save you a lot of money! But be careful not to take the subway during rush hour. ask about it there because im not really sure... More

very reliable with modern rolling stock. trains run frequently but can get very crowded at times. The Metro takes you to close by or near to many of the attractions in Dubai; The all day ticket is good value

The metro along the main road and the train/monorail from Atlantis are very easy to use but being so new the network is limited. You may still taxi or use bus to get to specifics. Taxis are very cheap here so if a tourist, maybe stick to those.

The cheapest means of transport to visit the major attractions. The carriages are comfortable, but the air conditioning is maximum. It is very easy to identificate the locations were the metro stop.

There are only two lines, however the metro is far reaching and can easily transport you from dubai to Sharjah with ease. It is cheap and works based on zones. Best to get a day pass if you'll be hopping on and off. Very clean, spacious trains, and modern. TIP: Even if your location isn't on the metro line, take... More

The Dubai Metro was very clean and streamlined. Buying tickets for a tourist is very easy. The chart on the machine tells you what sections of the city would make your purchase a tier 1, 2, or 3. Accepts credit cards. And riding it is straight forward with easy notifications in English along the way. Used it to get from... More

Built similar to the Singapore Metro, the Dubai one is managed very efficiently. It is priced a little high though. It is the preferred mode of local commute. Peak hours are very crowded and getting in and out could be difficult. The rail charts are self explanatory. You need to tender exact change at the Ticket vending machines or else... More
