“Not bad”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

I used the metro about three or four times during my week long stay in Dubai. All times they were very full of people (not good for anyone claustrophobic). The ticket machines are easy to use and its quite cheap. The metros arrive about every 5minutes so it can come in handy. However, I personally found that taxi service was much better for getting around in Dubai. I used this method so much more than metros. The price actually worked out cheaper but I guess it depends on how many times you need to travel during the day. This way you also get your own space and for most cabs, the lovely air conditioning! Make sure to check your change after paying as we have been undercut by 1-2durham a couple of times. Not that we cared, but it is more the principle.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Clean, punctual, air conditioned - great service. Its cheap but the day ticket is great value and there's a short fare you can buy if you're only going one stop. Ticket machines are in English and very easy to use. No eating or drinking allowed on board so it is spotless. Although taxis are cheap in Dubai the metro is often faster and you get great views of the city

“Clean, but beware of stares”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

As a single woman, I cannot stress enough how important it is to travel in the women's car. Whenever I wasn't in that car, I was openly gawked at, even though I was covered from ankle to wrist.

Amazing system! All driverless, runs on time and immaculately clean, trains and stations - London Underground could learn a lot
