“Very convenient”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

Dubai metro is a state of the art metro system. Relatively new and spotless. Very smooth ride in which you can enjoy the views of Dubai. Red route takes you to all major spots in Dubai. Buy a daily pass for 16 AED (roughly $4) and use it all day as many times as you want. Be warned though- it gets very crowded in the mornings and evenings. Out of the 10+ times we used the metro, I think we got seats only once or twice. Regardless, the metro is a very cost-efficient and quick method of transportation in Dubai.

“Fast, efficient and reliable (what Melbourne transport is not)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

The Dubai metro is a fast, efficient and reliable way to get around Dubai. It was only 16 dirhams to get around for the day and the trains were clean and went to most places a tourist would need to get to. The ticketing system is also far more efficient than the horrible system we have in Melbourne (tourists have to pay $6 JUST for a hard ticket) and it is not confusing to get around as stations are numbered and train lines are coded.

I ended up spontaneously taking the train to the Mall of the Emirates and visiting Ski Dubai where as I wouldn't have found this location without the metro. It's everything the Melbourne public transport system isn't. Definitely give the Dubai Metro a go.

“Great way to get around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

Try to get to the front if possible, the views are spectacular. Very quick, convenient and cheap. The metro will take you to most places of interest, but can be busy at times.
