The stations and metro is easily accessible for even specially able people. Taxis are easily available outside most stations... However the network isn't very widely spread and could do with more...

As long as you're close to the population strip that lines the main highway through town, then you can take advantage of the airconditioned comfort that this system provides. It's clean, comfortable, fast and frequent, and there are only two lines - red and green - so you'd have to try really hard to get lost! It is also driverless,... More

It doesn't go everywhere but it really is handy when Dubai is really quite spread out. Inexpensive too considering how much taxis cost!

Dubai metro is very clean, quiet ride and there are even decks dedicated for women only. All the metro stations are covered so you will not need to be under the hot sun. During weekends, the metro are quite crowded with passengers.

I like to travel in the city with Metro and its easy access to all over. The best part is while we get the Gold class travel☺

Very good way to get around. Buy the gold card if you don't like being in crowds. In busy times trains come every 2 mins, 5 mins other times so very fast. One note, don't run for a train, you will be shouted at by the police.

The metro very basic here but it stops near a lot of attractions. You will need to get a cab to get to and from most attractions like the souks. It can get pretty packed and people seem to have no respect for each other whilst boarding etc. If you have fair skin or breasts you will get stared at... More
