“good and clean but..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2013

the metro system is great, clean and efficient but it is alot of walking once you arrive at the stations. The entrance is NOT IMMEDIATE and must walk a long way to get to and from the trains. At the dubai mall stop it takes appx. another 15-20 minutes of walking to get into the mall..We used the JBT stop a lot and once enter into metro takes another good 5 min. walk to get to the tracks..Also if you do not like to stand a long time do invest in a GOLD card with reserved section on the trains for seats. To get to some of the popular sights from marina area it will take from 25 to 45 minutes one way (i.e. gold souk) -

“It's new it's clean it's safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

I only have positive reviews about it. Like all new metro's it needs to work on its connections from the shopping and living areas to the metro itself. It seems it is not that popular to the middle and "higher" class. Definitely worth to try and I am sure it will only get better and better.

“Futuristic transport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

The cleanest subway I have ever met. The stations are constantly cleaned. The escalators and moving walkways appear brand new. The station buildings in the new town area modern, almost futuristic appearance. The old part of town are pertinent station tower buildings. The station buildings, platforms, trains and air-conditioned.
The metro lines in almost every major attraction, tourist destination and business center believe can be reached. Except for the coastal part of what is circumstantially can be reached by bus or taxi. Frequently associated with subway and can quickly travel with it especially during rush hour when the taxi slowed down due to congestion. On the subway during rush hour crowd is there.
Public transport, the metro is cheap. The price depends on the distance traveled and the number of skipped band limits. There is the price of trip between AED 1.8 and 4.3, but only up to 14 days AED detract from the machine, then the trip is free.
