“Expensive and no connections.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

There is absolutely no reason to take public transportation in Dubai, none of the stations connects with anything, and you can't walk from the stations to anywhere, you still end up taking a taxi. And if you are two people sharing a taxi, it will often be cheaper then taking public transportation.

“Dubai's Lifeline!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

We travelled the entire city through the Metro and saved us time and money. It is extremely well connected to all major tourists spots. The service is cheap, clean and efficient and laid out extremely well. Their airport connection is an added bonus.

“Overcrowding a big big problem.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

Whatever you do, do not use the metro on a Saturday after 15:00 it is extremely crowded to almost dangerous levels, even witnessed people screaming and shoving at each other to get on trains that are already jam packed, gold class is the only way to go on weekends. Its a shame as it is a amazing system but when trains are full they are full?? officials need to be employed to remedy this.

Liked--cleanliness, timely, once you understand the routes it gets you around the city and you can escape traffic on the road
Disliked--does not run at night, does not to the airport
