This service is excellent. Trains cover nearly everywhere, run every 10mins or so. The price is very good. I always use this service when I am in Dubai

Please note that you can... More

Brand new metro, clean, and fast. If only they would put more entrance points to the stations. Sometimes you have to wallk quite a lot until you can get out of the station.

I come from Montreal so the Metro is always broken and dirty. This is not applicable to the Dubai one. Their system is brand new, the trains are spotless and shine and have no driver. And each station is decorated in unimaginable ways. They have a gold section which costs a bit more and allows you to sit and a... More

Small but efficient network. Have manned counters for people who are new. Prominent signs to indicate station locations would be welcome.

Clean, cheap and easy to use for even the most inexperienced tourists. Obviously has its busy times as people use it to get to and from work. Covers a large area of the city and has links to trams/monorail to get you a bit further towards the Palm.

This metro itself is good, not too fast, like a local subway that stops everywhere. What's bad is the connection once you get off. You have to walk for very long time to exit or to find a taxi if you are lucky enough. I took it to Burj Khalifa. Once you are off, you still have 1-2 km to... More

The good news is, the service runs on time and is relatively inexpensive. The trains are clean and spacious. There are three types carriages: Gold (it's worth it, if you can), women/children only, and general. Tge only thing I didn't like was the body odour of fellow passengers. The trains are 90% full from 17:00 until 23:00 I would have... More
