The most difficult part is not a function of the metro itself, but rather the layout of the metro stops vs looking at a map of the city. Many of the metro maps aren't overlaid onto the map of the city, so just confirm which station is closest to your destination before you get on and it's a breeze. Can... More

The location of the stops makes no sense.The Burj Khalifa stop is like 15 mins walk from the tower for example. The metro is packed all the time. Take a cab or buy the gold ticket,the price is 2X as the regular one but at least you can sit down and will be crushed like in the regular cars.

If you visit Dubai, book your hotel that says near Metro Station. We stayed in Crown Plaza and the station is just 3minutes by foot. It is convenient and comfortable. Taxi can be hard sometime during peak hours. Taxi drivers in Dubai can be a bit rough in their speed. It is also nice to see Dubai City sitting in... More

The Best thing to happen to Dubai. The Metro is a boon to residents and Tourists alike. easy to understand, well maintained and clean, and also conveniently connected. the only thing that confuses is the penalties and fines on falling asleep while commuting and also on munching gum or any food while traveling (But i think that makes good sense).

The metro is a certainly a convenient way to travel. Tickets are very reasonably priced and parking is available at most stations if you want that facility. The carriages just for women and children make everyone feel very safe, and the Gold Class carriages (for a higher ticket price) afford more comfort and less crowds if you prefer that. The... More

Used this a number of times while in Dubai. Easy to understand and good value for money if you are coming from the airport as the taxis can be very expensive. Can get very crowded. Just beware that the metro that stops at Dubai Mall is still a 2km walk (inside at least).
